Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when it comes to concentration and academic performance. The Students’ Association at the University of Technology, Sydney recognises that students are skipping breakfast before early lectures, or sometimes can’t afford sustaining and nutritious foods, so we created Bluebird Brekkie Bar. Made by students for students, Bluebird is a large-scale pop-up cafe providing free, sustainable, delicious and nutritious breakfast once a week – organic muesli, permeate-free milk and natural yoghurt, freshly-baked local sourdough with avocado and spreads, fruit juice, fresh organic fruit and fair-trade tea and coffee – all in an inclusive community setting with chilled-out indie music.
Our aim is to improve student welfare whilst laying the foundation for positive long-term habits around nutrition and sustainable lifestyle choices. And we are doing just that, feeding around 1,000 students every breakfast and receiving encouraging feedback that our sustainability message is getting through. Bluebird has fast become one of (if not the) most popular attractions at UTS, and is the object of envy from other universities. We are proud to have the support of our Chancellor and Vice Chancellors, and to provide a professional standard service from a grass-roots level.
