Hunger on campus is a prominent issue that affects over 2,500 students, staff, and alumni alike at the University of Alberta. The COVID -19 pandemic has put even more pressure on members of our community and has amplified the need for support. This year the Campus Food Bank is partnering with the University of Alberta's Safe House Program, which provides emergency accomodation to students and their families.
The Fast and The Studious is an annual event held by the Campus Food Bank to help spread awareness to the issue of food insecurity on campus. The event is a pledge drive culminating in a 24 hour fast beginning on December 10th. Participants will collect donations online through "CanadaHelps.
The Campus Food Bank truly appreciates any and all participation in the event. The donations you collect will go directly towards helping fund the operations of both the Campus Food Bank and the University of Alberta Safe House Program.
