Barnard No Aramark

In the 2018-2019 academic year, the Roosevelt Human Rights Center, led by Roosevelters Maeve Flaherty (CC ’21), Emma Gomez (CC ’19), and Jihoon Ko (CC ’22) undertook “Barnard No Aramark,” a campaign to force Barnard to change its dining services provider. Historically, Barnard has contracted its dining services out to Aramark, a multi-billion dollar corporation with a dubious track record of unsanitary food services and employee misconduct (not to mention its ties to the prison industrial complex). On November 14th, 2018, the Columbia Roosevelt Human Rights Center organized an extremely successful boycott of Barnard dining services, collecting over 1,000 signatures on their petition in opposition to Aramark.
