Food fight breaks out in Leonard Cafeteria

Fight lasts a few minutes towards end of dinner

A group of Queen’s students participated in a St. Patrick’s Day food fight in Leonard Hall cafeteria at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

Sources say the fight lasted a few minutes before students started exiting the cafeteria.

Leading up to March 17, the Main Campus Residents’ Council’s Green Team, the Queen’s Hospitality and Housing Services and community individuals planned initiatives to prevent the annual food fight from happening.

Tonight, there was a fiddling band in Leonard Hall.

Some individuals organized a vigil outside the cafeteria with signs that read, “Think food, think Haiti–Happy St. Patrick’s Day” to encourage students not to participate in the unsanctioned event.
