cashier serving student in MarketplaceFood Services will ask customers this week if they would like to make a $1 donation to the student food bank.

Collection to help stock shelves of student food bank

With supplies running low at the Campus Food Bank operated by Iona College to serve UWindsor students, it’s time for the University community to consider supporting students who are need, says Dave McEwen, head of Food Services.

“They say that one of the main reasons people don’t give to charity is because they’re never asked,” he says. “This week, we are going to start asking.”

Cashiers at Food Services outlets across campus will ask clients to consider a $1 donation to support the student food bank each time they ring through a purchase this week.

“I’m really hoping that together, we can make a difference for those who need our help,” McEwen says. “This is a stressful time of year for many students and not having food to eat only adds to their stress.”

The food bank is based in the basement of Canterbury College at 2500 University Avenue West. It provides non-perishable foodstuffs to students with valid ID.
