Did you know that nearly 43% of post-secondary students in Canada are food insecure? Added to that, many students who live on campus are far from home and do not have access to the groceries they need to prepare a meal that reminds them of home.
The Student Union, the Global Engagement Office and UBC Okanagan Library are collaborating on a food drive to help stock the shelves of The Pantry student food bank with items for our diverse campus community. Taste of Home Food Drive encourages UBCO staff, faculty, and students to donate unique and nutritious items.
Help give UBCO Students a Taste of Home. Donations will be collected at UBC Okanagan Library (1st floor) and at Picnic (UNC 1st floor) from November 4 until November 30.
Suggested items to donate:

*when possible, items should be obtained in small portions, or can be repackaged in smaller portions to accommodate student use.
