Fighting for Food Security
Nutritious food is a human right. We believe that governments should take responsibility for funding social support systems to alleviate student poverty and hunger. In the interim, communities are stepping in to ensure fairness and stability in food systems. This campaign fights for adequate access to good and affordable food for students while ensuring environmental sustainability and proper accessibility. We aim to raise awareness of food insecurity and to show solidarity with migrant workers, who face dangerous and exploitative working conditions in order to produce food for the profit of large corporations.
The Good Food Center at Ryerson University conducted a Hunger Report from 2013 to 2018. This report recognizes the prevalence and severity of food insecurity among students, faculty and staff. Click here to read the Hunger report.
Due to Covid-19, the distribution of food on-campus to fight food insecurity has been limited.
