Soul Food continues to help those in need

 
2008-11-14

Soul Food, a Queen's student-run initiative working to raise awareness about Canadians living in poverty, has received a $1,000 cheque from Hospitality Services in Leonard Hall.

The funds will assist the group with transportation costs and other financial shortfalls to help them fight hunger in Kingston.

Soul Food enables volunteers and corporations to come together and make a real difference in people's lives. Soul Food volunteers collect excess food portions from the university's dining halls and deliver them to local shelters. The program aims to eliminate food waste by promoting responsible food consumption.

The cheque was presented on behalf of the Sodexo Foundation, the charitable arm of Sodexo Inc.
