On Saturday, Sept. 30, UNB Homecoming hosted its annual event ‘The Tasting’. The event was catered by the UNB Sodexo team who did not disappoint, designing a unique food truck inspired menu. Guests were treated to street food favorites including a poutine station, deep fried mac & cheese, tacos and churros.

Rave Reviews!

The food was a hit and received great reviews, including one from The Brunswickan’s Disha Bisto who attended the event.

“Wade Flowers, a graduate from Education, Business (Class of 1993) and Computer Science (Class of 1999) was attending Homecoming after ten years and was impressed by the event’s turnout. His favourite options of the evening were The Trailway Dunder Pale Ale and ‘The Mac Shack.’ Like all in attendance—myself included—he believes that events like this help to maintain the positive school spirit that universities thrive on.” The Brunswickan, 6 October 2017
