Hallowe’en food drive issues call for volunteers

The Organization of Part-time University Students (OPUS) has thrown its support behind Trick or Eat, which organizes volunteers to dress up and head door-to-door asking for non-perishable food items instead of candy.

Last year, the program of Meal Exchange Windsor raised over 3,000 pounds of food for Hiatus House and the Well-Come Centre for Human Potential.

OPUS has agreed to provide volunteers, funding to run the event, and promotion.

The campaign runs over a week, including an evening of promotional leafleting on October 25, a canned good collection in the CAW Student Centre on October 29, the Trick or Eat canvass on October 31, and delivery of donations on November 1.

To join the effort, register under “University of Windsor” at www.trickoreat.ca or contact Jessie Smith or Lauren Quinn by phone at 226-348-0053 or e-mail windsor@mealexchange.com.
