  3. 3. Located on the campus of the largest federal university in Brazil (the UFRJ) the University Restaurant currently distributes 2500 lunches at a subsidized price of $ 2.00 (aprox.1US Dolar).
  4. 4. A restaurant placed in a university should not only provide food to students, it should be a place of food education. All service done at the restaurant must express this Educational purpose.
  5. 5. The UFRJ Master Plan is targeted to reach 30000 of meals per day by 2020 (building new restaurants all over the Campus). With approximately 60,000 people per day, with about 1/3 of that total consisted of students, the university campus is a real city. The restaurant described here is called “Central” and its actions are examples to the other restaurants to built following the UFRJ Master Plan, and not only: it is pioneer in practices that are also examples to other university restaurants in Brazil.

  6. 6. Context The University Restaurant project is a relevant building in this Campus-City and is willing to become a privileged pole for discussion about processes involving the production, acquisition, preparation and delivery of food. It reflects the image of a university that apply the knowledge it produces and practices the social and environmental commitments it advocates. The sub-projects implemented were derived from the dialogue with other stakeholders in the food production chain, trying to provoke in the final users, who frequented the restaurant, a thought about his responsibility as co-producer of its own food.
  7. 7. Today the food preparation in the university restaurant is outsourced and, therefore, it is defined by the contracted company based on an industrial approach to food provision. The objective is to promote a change in the concept of what a University Restaurant could be, and consequently, promote a change in the service and quality of food provided.
