|Food Centre: Overview
Trick or Eat is a one month event on campus. During this month we will collect donations, recruit volunteers and promote the event. At the end of the month (on Halloween) volunteers will go off campus to ask for donations and non-perishable foods for their local food bank. The University of Saskatchewan Student’s Union has been involved with this event for a number of years, and last year the USSU recruited around 300 volunteers who collected and donated 6000 pounds of food to the local food bank. We had the third largest number of volunteers in Canada.
Students holding a valid Saskatchewan Health Card and Student ID can request an emergency food hamper at the Food Centre during office hours (see below) or at the USSU Main Office located in room 103, Memorial Union Building.
The USSU Food Centre is now placing CHEP Good Food Box orders. Orders can be placed at the Food Centre or at the USSU Main Office. Those wishing to place orders must pay up front, in cash. The USSU Food Centre was established in 2003 by the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union, in conjunction with the Saskatoon Food Bank, in response to hunger on campus. Student hunger has become more prevalent because of increased tuition and more limited student funding.
