Cafe Food Vending Machines Add New Options

Food Services Department Introduces More Options


Selkirk College and the Food Services Department are pleased to introduce the new cafe food vending machines. Everything that is great about the wholesome, fresh and tasty food offered in the cafeterias will now be available for you to purchase after hours and on weekends at all three campus locations.

Craving a pretzel at 6:00 p.m. while working on a project? It's available in the vending machine. How about the lunch special offered in the cafeteria? Available in the vending machine. Coconut water? Gluten free brownie? Chips and salsa? All there… along with Keurig coffee/tea or hot chocolate pods complete with cup and many more choices. All of this and will now be available in the new cafe vending machine.

On the Castlegar Campus, the cafe machine is located in the cafeteria. At Nelson’s Silver King Campus, it is downstairs in the cafeteria. At the Tenth Street Campus in Nelson, the machine will be located on the main floor of Patenaude Hall. The great thing about this new addition is that they are open and ready to go when the cafeterias are not.
