JOIN US: BEYOND CAMPUS FOOD BANKS WEBINAR!

Posted by on in CAMPUS NEWS

No student should have to choose between buying food and buying textbooks, but far too many do every year. In fact, almost every campus across Canada now has a food bank, and a growing number of students are turning to food banks to get the food they need to survive, let alone focus on their education. And many more students needed assistance but stayed away because of the stigma associated with going to a food bank.

 

This interactive webinar will explore how campus food banks can be transformed into more welcoming spaces that:

 

– offer sufficient food and healthier options

– build food skills and foster community connections

– engage students in working towards campuses where no student has to rely on emergency food charity

 

Saturday November 8th, 12-1pm Eastern Time

Register here!

 

 

This webinar is the first of many network calls that will connect students and stakeholders who are working to transform food banks on their campuses, as well as those who want to get involved in supporting this work across the country.
