Nourish UNC claim university is trying to shut them down for selling meals to boycotters
“The boycott is working. The university is not thrilled.”
Last night, Nourish UNC-Chapel Hill reported the University is threatening to shut down their alternative meal service for students boycotting the school.
In a Facebook post , they wrote: "The boycott is working. The university is not thrilled." Nourish usually sells their food in the Pit. They say the university has "threatened to shut [them] down on the basis of [them] selling products outside of the Pit area."
They say the University's has responded because "the boycott is working. The university is not thrilled."
They have moved to the Campus Y and now strongly recommend donations rather than charging for food. All proceeds will benefit the Center for Civil Rights.
Boycott UNC began September 18 as a hope to attract the attention of the Board of Trustees and Board of Governors and further the momentum to remove Silent Sam from the UNC campus. Students choose not to spend money at UNC Student Stores, Alpine Bagels, Wendy's, Starbucks, Rams Market and the Blue Ram Cafe.
Boycott UNC continues through October 18, the first day of Fall Break.
