Recently Janet Morrison sent out an appeal (below) for food banks to be set up for students.
Anna Santilli in Scott Circulation has taken the initiative of setting up a student food bank drop in the Scott Circ workroom. Kudos to Anna for taking this initiative! This is a wonderful gesture of support to our students during the labour disruption. If you have non-perishably items you want to drop off for the YFS Food Bank, please bring them by. See Anna’s note below.
“Let us remember the less fortunate…
If you are interested in donating, I have placed a box in the workroom (non-perishable food). I will make arrangements to either deliver or have the items picked up.
Thank you Anna!
A message sent on behalf of Janet Morrison.
Colleagues: Over 600 York community members and families regularly depend on the YFS Food Bank. Due to the current labour disruption, the YFS is anticipating an increase in demand for food. In addition, the trucks that replenish the Food Bank will not cross the picket line, a reality that will further compound the problem.
York is a caring, compassionate learning community. As a demonstration of support for our students and to fuel their success, I am writing to ask you and your colleagues to consider donating non-perishable food items next week. Specifically, unit leaders are asked to coordinate a collection within their own units and facilitate delivery to room 336 Student Centre (YFS office) between 10am and 6pm from Monday March 9th to Friday March 13th. If you require assistance with the delivery, please contact me at email@example.com.
