Adapting Menus To Student

By |June 15th, 2020|

Our Algoma University Café team takes great pride in our ability to provide students with amazing scratch prepared meals, made fresh every day using locally sourced ingredients.

Our student feedback drives customized menu selections.  At Algoma one popular example is our authentic Jerk Chicken, as requested by our students and provided by Chef John Holland its popularity has now earned it the status of becoming an every week menu feature.

This story began with students (Chavannay, Angie, Lexine pictured above with Chef John) wanting to compliment and thank Chef John for his amazing work on a classic BBQ chicken special which he had provided. They asked Chef if he could make Jerk Chicken to help remind International students from Jamaica, of home.

For the culinary team, home is the feeling we want to emulate for our students, and what better way of doing so, than providing them with fresh meals, made from scratch. We understand that students sometimes have the feeling of being homesick and want to be able to taste fresh food that reminds them of home and brings some comfort.

Chef John provides the openness and social media avenues for Algoma students as well as our staff to be able to freely communicate with him and request any type of meal they would like because, in his words, we wouldn’t be a “Happy Kitchen if we didn’t do just that”.
