Nourishing Dreams: UM Student Foodbank helps hundreds of students every month

November 28, 2023 — 

November 28th is Giving Tuesday. A special day for Canadians to join hands and contribute to charities and organizations close to their hearts. One cause that urgently needs attention is the University of Manitoba Student Food Bank, a lifeline for many of our students.

In the face of an unprecedented surge in demand, the Student Food Bank is now assisting more than 600 students every month. Organizers believe these students, driven by dreams and aspirations, should not be hindered by basic food needs and that their success should know no barriers.

The generosity of people within the UM community and outside of it, whether through donations of non-perishable food items, monetary gifts, or volunteering, can make a profound difference in a student’s life. 

Watch the video above to learn more about the University of Manitoba Student Food Bank and see how it is providing sustenance and support to those in need. Let’s make this Giving Tuesday a day of transformative impact – a day when compassion and action come together to create lasting change.
