Healthy Beverage Initiative

Our UBC community members work and learn within a demanding, high-performance academic environment. Having access to nourishing food and beverages, and the necessary information to make healthy choices, helps them thrive. A Healthy Beverage Initiative is an important step towards changing our on-campus environment to better support their wellbeing. 

Sugar sweetened beverages* are the single-largest contributor of added sugar in the diet. Recognizing this, the Food and Nutrition committee and all major food-provider stakeholders worked together with students, staff and faculty across the university to promote tap water consumption and reduce consumption of sugar sweetened beverages. 

Encourage drinking water consumption.

Modify our environment to support healthier beverage consumption.




We all have a hand in shaping campus environments that support health, wellbeing, and sustainability. By championing wellbeing, we can build stronger and more inclusive communities at UBC and beyond.
