Students at Harper Adams can now “graze” all day at the University College’s new café.
The new dining experience opened recently as part of the improved student facilities at the Shropshire based campus.
A competition last year where staff and students were asked to pick a name resulted in the new café receiving the apt name of graze – reflecting the University College’s agricultural, farming and food based background.
It is now open daily and adds to the already thriving food facilities in the Queen Mother Hall and the Kaldi Café in the Bamford Library led by the catering department.
Graze is open from 8am to 8pm and serves freshly prepared salads, sandwiches, soup, jacket potatoes and hot food as well as a range of snacks and drinks.
This week, Graze has been offering a different breakfast experience every day including traditional English, American, Irish, Continental and Scottish at reasonable prices as part of the Farmhouse Breakfast Week.
The event was held in association with ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up’- a national event to raise awareness of the importance of having breakfast and all staff and students have been invited to try out the new facilities.
Mitchell Hall, Catering Placement Student, who has organised the breakfast event said: “The new Graze café has added to the already fantastic facilities her at Harper.
“The new café is modern, with plenty of seating areas, comfy seating and benches where students and staff can bring their lap tops and work while having something to eat, or socialise with each other.
“There is a wide range of food on offer and the Farmhouse Breakfast Week as part of Shake Up Your Wake Up has been a real success.”
