RAQ Grab and Go Student Event

RAQ’s January 8th 2020 inaugural “Grab and Go with Queen’s Retirees” was a great success. In association with the Queen’s Faith and Spiritual Life office, 120 students received a nutritious snack which gave them a little more energy for the rest of the day. At a table set up in the University Centre, four RAQ members handed out 120 healthy muffins to students walking by.

The event, organized by Catherine Purcell and supported by five other RAQ members, was the first of three planned for the spring term, 2020. Unfortunately, COVID interrupted our plans, but we hope to be able to continue the program in the coming school year.

Volunteers agree to provide two dozen healthy but nut-free muffins for each event, and some also help with the distribution between 10:30 and 11:30 Participants bring a copy of the recipe for each batch provided so that students know exactly what’s in them and can even take a picture of the recipes in case they want to make the muffins again at home.
