Let it be known that we the undersigned demand that the Board of Trustees at the University of Vermont cancel their contract with food service provider Sodexho Marriott Services (SMS) as long as they, or their parent company Sodexho Alliance (SA) continue to invest in the for-profit prison industry. We object to our money (through mandatory meal plans and purchasing food on campus) being used to fund the construction and operation of for-profit prisons. Sodexho Alliance's recent promise to divest from the Correctional Corporation of America (CCA) is not enough. We demand that SA divest from all agents of the prison industrial complex including international private prison companies. Many alternatives options exist including student-managed dining, socially conscious businesses, or the use of organic, bioregional, and genetically modified free foods. The student body must approve any alternative food service provider. Alternative contracts must insure the job security for the current University Dining Services staff and the right for the employees to organize.
