Food for Thought Fund Award

Through the Food for Thought Fund Award, you can receive up to $2,500 to help support a project within the Food for Thought program, to help combat food insecurity on campus.

Free non-perishable items for students to pick up if they are short of funds or a meal.


The Bodega is a sister project to the Little Library Pantries that is designed to help students who are short of funds or are in need of a meal. Stop by SP157 in the Student Union building, down the hall from the Collective Centre (just off the tunnel) for a meal or snack.  


Food Literacy Program

This program encourages students to deepen their understanding about nutrition and misconceptions about food insecurity. In the Fall and Winter semesters Food for Thought facilitates workshops to promote students food literacy.
