ABOUT STUDENTS FOR GOOD FOOD FOR ALL
Through Students for Good Food for All, Meal Exchange has teamed up with Community Food Centres Canada to cultivate connections between campuses and Community Food Centres, and engage more students in the fight for good food for all.
Community Food Centres address issues of hunger, poor health and social isolation by creating welcoming spaces where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food for all. Community Food Centres Canada provides resources and a proven approach to partner organizations across Canada to create Community Food Centres, and also works with the broader food movement to empower communities to work toward a healthy and fair food system.
Since 1993, Meal Exchange has supported students to develop innovative solutions to address hunger, food insecurity and sustainability on their campuses and with communities.
Meal Exchange continues to broaden and deepen its programs, maintaining support for programs that provide immediate access to food, and becoming involved in programs that engage people in cooking, growing and advocating to change the policies that keep people hungry.
Students for Good Food for All provides student leaders with the tools, knowledge and support they need to:
- gain hands-on community work skills through direct involvement at groundbreaking Community Food Centres
- create opportunities for student involvement at partner Community Food Centres
- host events that raise awareness about the root causes of hunger in communities and on campuses
- start the conversation with key campus partners on how the Community Food Centre model can be applied to campus
The project empowers students to be leaders of conscience, builds the Community Food Centres’s capacity, and adds momentum to building fairer and more inclusive food systems on campus and beyond.
