Get Aramark off the University of Limerick campus

Terminate the contract for catering services awarded to Aramark by the University of Limerick.

Why is this important?

Aramark is an American based corporation that operates Direct Provision centres for the State in Cork, Clare and Westmeath, and are also commercially involved in the prison system in the United States.

Aramark currently runs a large number of food outlets on the campus such as:
Cafe Allegro – University Concert Hall
Eden Restaurant – Main Building
Cafe Cube – Kemmy
River Cafe – Engineering Building
Cafe Verde – Health Science
Red Raisins* – Main Building
*(Chopped, Mexico Kitchen, Subway, Starbucks)

UL awarded their catering contract to a corporation that is frequently criticised for its treatment of those in the asylum system and its profiteering off the misery of refugees and those incarcerated in the United States.

This contract goes against the community spirit of UL, and the inclusive campus we all love. The University of Limerick is considered a University of Sanctuary for asylum seekers and refugees, offering 15 scholarships each year to residents living in direct provision.
