A university has risked making itself very unpopular with its students – by banning leftovers in the canteen.

Students at the University of Freiburg have been allowed to collect discarded food off a sushi-style conveyor belt.

However, the uni has now banned the move, which was given the imaginative name ‘conveyor-belting’, because of health and safety, SWR reported.

Renate Heyberger, deputy managing director of the Freiburg student center, said: ‘When it came up, we let it run. But when it became a bigger phenomenon, we had to discuss it at the board meeting.

‘The food is a hygiene risk. If something happens, the manager is liable.’

Predictably, students are pretty upset about losing their right to free food.

Jonathan Frey said no one would complain if they became ill from the food, and said he hopes the student union can work on a compromise.

The university is so keen on people sticking to the new ban that they’re planning to build a cover over the conveyor belt.
