Food insecurity disproportionately impacts Black communities, Indigenous peoples, and people of colour. Meal Exchange’s Racialized Students Caucus, the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) and the Re•Vision Centre at the University of Guelph are partnering to elevate the voices of racialized students who have experienced food insecurity, through a digital story-telling workshop.

The 3-day workshop, taking place on November 22-24 at the University of Guelph, aims to bring together racialized students with lived experience of food insecurity to build skills in video making and gain knowledge of artistic methods for community dialogue, policy action, and challenging dominant narratives.  

All costs of the workshop (registration, travel, accommodations, and food) will be covered. Students from all campuses across Ontario are welcome to submit an expression of interest to attend, the deadline to apply is October 2nd at midnight.
