Free meals three days a week

February 7th, 2024

The Office of Sustainability, the Peace Centre, and the Dawson Student Union are thrilled to announce a new food justice initiative to expand access to food security for students and employees during the Winter 2024 semester.

Beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 13, Dawson Dining will be offered two days every week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as a collaboration between the Office of Sustainability and the Dawson Student Union. This service will end on May 22. Students and employees can drop off their labelled containers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays by 11 AM at Conrod’s (2F). All meals are vegan and zero-waste (90 per cent of waste will be diverted from a landfill).

As of Thursday, Feb. 15, the Peace Centre, under the auspices of the Office of Sustainability, will offer free Early Bird Breakfast to the Dawson community on a first come, first served basis. This will continue every Thursday at 10 AM in Conrod's (2F) for the winter 2024 semester. All meals will be clearly indicated vegetarian or vegan and will also be zero-waste. The service will end May 23.

Cano reusable containers (also available in the cafeteria to reduce our waste) will be provided to students that can be returned to the Cano dispensers near the cafeteria.

If you would like to help out with the meal services, please email Diana Rice, who says: “This is a wonderful way to meet new colleagues, get to know the students we work so hard for every day, and just feel good about being of service."
