Hunger on campus is a prominent issue that affects over 2,500 students, staff, and alumni alike at the University of Alberta. Based on statistics gathered by the Campus Food Bank (C.F.B.), this issue is one that continues to grow as client usage has continued to steadily increase over the past few years.
The Fast and The Studious is an annual event held by the Campus Food Bank to help spread awareness of the growing problem of hunger in the campus community and raise funds for the C.F.B. to combat the issue. The event itself takes the form of a pledge drive in which participants fast for 24 hours to bring awareness about food insecurity on campus. Participants are expected to collect donations through the "CanadaHelps" web page, with a minimum goal.
The Campus Food Bank truly appreciates any and all participation in the event. Your participation will go directly towards helping fund the daily operations of the C.F.B. allowing us to provide our clients with nutritious food.
