STUDENTS FOR GOOD FOOD FOR ALL: INTRO WEBINAR
In order to launch the program application process, Meal Exchange hosted a webinar to introduce Students for Good Food for All. The webinar welcomed a diverse group of attendees (students, faculty, administrators and community workers) and featured Michael Waglay, Program Coordinator & Metcalf Sustainability Intern, who provided an in-depth look at Students for Good Food for All. You can watch the video by clicking here.
Beyond providing you with an in-depth look at the program, the webinar video also delves into what “good food” means, the mixed history of campus-community partnerships and discusses ideas about cultivating change on campus and with communities. In addition, the webinar video explores the role of campus food banks and other food programs in applying and adapting the Community Food Centre model to campus.
Students for Good Food for All is still seeking Campus Coordinators to lead this work on the ground in Winnipeg, Toronto, Stratford and Perth (ON). The deadline to apply is August 22nd, but we’re accepting students on a rolling basis so please apply as soon as possible. Here is a link to the application form.
