In November 2019, the University of Lethbridge launched Nourish as part of an ongoing effort to support food security on campus. Combining existing and new programs, Nourish helps students facing food scarcity while providing our campus community ways to help.
15% of students said they had gone a whole day without food because they couldn't afford any.
1 in 4 uLethbridge students admit to having run of food and not having the resources to buy more.
Only 7.4% of uLethbridge students said they have accessed the ULSU food bank
Whether you give time, food or dollars to a Nourish initiative, or if you’re a student who would benefit from this program, you can help build a future without food scarcity.
