Meals will typically cost just £2.59, and could include a mix of hot dishes, as well as handmade sandwiches, filled baguettes, or snacks.
Customers can pick up their order anytime between 19:30 - 20:00 - just show your order receipt to one of our catering staff.

Birkbeck and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are Fairtrade accredited Universities. We are committed to supporting Fairtrade in the products we procure, and are seeking new ways to incorporate and promote Fairtrade across catering and other services.
Birkbeck is partnered with Olleco, who collects our waste cooking oil and processes it into high grade bio fuel which can be used as a renewable energy source.
This reduces the environmental impact of our waste stream and provides an alternative to fossil fuels.
