Photo Booth and Candy Giveaway: Grab your friends and stop by Lower Place Riel (across from Treats) from 11 to 2 p.m. to get a free treat if you are dressed up, use the photo booth, or by bringing a nonperishable food item for Treat or Eat (all donations go to the Food Bank).
Pumpkin Carving: Come to the International Student and Study Abroad Centre (Room 80, Place Riel) at 4 p.m. to show off your pumpkin carving skills! Limited spots, sign up required.
Treat or Eat: Too old to go trick or treating? Now you have an excuse! On Halloween, instead of candy, thousands of Trick or Eaters from communities across Canada will go door to door to collect food for campus food organizations, and funds to support the work of students to continue to advocate for good food for all. Donate or join a team today!
Check out the USSU Food Centre’s Trick or Eat 2018 FB event for more information.
Trick or Eat is Meal Exchange’s annual student-led national event dedicated to helping the 40% of Canadian post-secondary students who experience food insecurity. On Halloween, instead of candy, thousands of Trick or Eaters from communities across Canada will go door to door to collect food for campus organizations, and funds to support the work of students to continue to advocate for good food for all. Participate in the campaign this year by joining a team with the USSU Food Centre!
