Meal Exchange is looking for students enrolled at Ontario Universities
for a paid short-term stipend position
beginning March 15th and ending April 15th.
Position: Student Secret Shopper
Contract Length: ~5 hours between March 15th-April 15th
Location: Ontario university campuses
This role is a part of Meal Exchange’s newest program, a “report card” for food on campus! This report card will rank Ontario campuses based on the sustainability, locality, accessibility, and healthfulness of food. The goal of the report card is to highlight campuses that are taking the lead and setting the bar for what is possible for campus food. By Fall of 2017, the report card project will publish final rankings, determining which Ontario campuses ‘make the grade’ in providing good food for their students.
The Student Secret Shopper will be responsible for completing a key component of the report card analysis; the Food Outlet Checklist. The Student Secret Shopper will visit two food outlets on their campus and complete a checklist for each. The checklist looks at what food is actually available in campus food outlets, including the advertising and availability of local and healthy foods.
Stipend: $75 (anticipated time spent is 5 hours)
