Donations to Food Banks

For the past number of years, in lieu of holiday gifts, the Faculty Association has donated to food banks in recognition of those in need at this time of year.

The Calgary Food Bank and the University of Calgary Students’ Union Campus Food Bank will each receive $2,500 this year.
