As the holiday season approached, students were busy writing papers and exams, and many were making plans to spend time with family and friends. It is a festive season of celebration and giving and of plenty for most.

Unfortunately, there are those within the U of T community who face food insecurity on a regular basis and for them, the holidays can be even more challenging.

This holiday initiative was beyond the regular day to day cooperation between Meal Care and Food Services.
