Soul Food

Queen's Soul Food is a student run organization which delivers the unconsumed food from Queen’s University campus cafeterias to local Kingston shelters every night. The organization was founded in 2007 and has now expanded to bring the unused food from both Leonard Hall and Ban Righ Hall cafeterias to four local shelters as well as the Kingston Street Truck Mission in the winter.

Soul Food is a great way to get involved with the Queen’s community and with the Kingston community as a whole. The aim is to raise awareness not only of the help that can be provided to the local shelters, but also to bring awareness and raise questions about personal food consumption. Soul Food’s initiatives create an effective way to gain first-hand exposure to the difference that more thoughtful food consumption can create.

Food that is not collected by Soul Food is also shared with Loving Spoonful Kingston to support their food reclamation program. These food items are distributed to a variety of agencies within the community, providing quality and fresh meals for those who are in need.
