November 4, 2016  |   Found in Student Life // SU Campus Food Bank // Volunteering

Did you know that the number of people using the SU Campus Food Bank has more than doubled in the past two years? Food security is an issue right here on campus. Here are three ways you can help support this vital service this holiday season:

Holiday Food Drive

Calling all Clubs: we need your help to collect food and monetary donations for the holiday season. Get your team together for the Holiday Food Drive. Compete against other teams, win prizes, and support an excellent cause! Email foodbank@ucalgary.ca by Nov.14 to register your team. The competition runs Nov. 21 – 24 in MacHall.

Adopt-a-Student-Family

Would you, your family or department like to adopt a student family this holiday season and provide gift hampers for children? Or maybe you are a student who is worried about providing gifts for your children this holiday season? The application deadline for both donors and families is Nov. 18. Confidentiality is ensured. Visit www.su.ucalgary.ca/vs for details.

Make a food or monetary donation any time

While food donations are always appreciated, monetary contributions have the biggest impact.
