October food drive benefits Food 4 Thought

Food bank donations

The York Federation of Students is holding a fall food drive in support of Food 4 Thought, the YFS food bank. Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted until Oct. 31. Food collection boxes are located in the YFS office on the Keele campus, college council offices, deans’ offices, and student club and organization offices in the Student Centre and in Vari Hall.

Food 4 Thought is open to any York University student (full-time or part-time, undergraduate or graduate). The YFS food bank had 500 visits in the month of September alone, and it distributes more than 250,000 pounds of food each year. All donations go directly to the food bank.

Departments and divisions on campus can obtain a collection box by contacting YFS at 416-736-5324 or foodbank@yfs.ca.
