For the whole month of November, Brandon University's dining hall is offering a 25 per cent discount to serving members of the military and veterans.
"We are always open to all members of the public, but we are making a special effort to welcome veterans and members of the military this month, so that we can help recognize and honour their service," said Nicholas Namespetra, BU's Manager of Food Services.
Harvest Hall offers a rotating menu of full dining options for breakfast, lunch and supper, including vegetarian options, a carvery station, and build-your-own plates. There are also convenient grab-and-go offerings through the new BU Fresh line, and outstanding new coffee options.
"Lunch today is a beef tagine with Israeli couscous, or a carrot osso bucco," Namespetra said. "Tonight we're offering a seafood paella, veggie bánh mì, or a carved beef station with baked potato, honey glazed carrots and gravy. It's all mouthwatering, it's as local as we can get, and it's all extremely affordable for everyone."
Harvest Hall is open 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., on weekdays, with a short-order grill open until 11 p.m. Hours are slightly reduced on weekends and statutory holidays. There is convenient nearby street parking on
Lorne Avenue, or free parking in BU lots after 4:30 p.m.
Veterans and members of the military only have to show ID to access the 25 per cent discount.
