UBC Food Safety

7 Minutes 1500 Words

A couple of my friends got food poisoning eating at places in the village in the past month or so. I decided to do some digging and find out which places have the best food safety records. To my horror, pretty much every place has food safety violations on campus.

Here’s the full list sorted by the number of infractions in the past year.
