U of G students raise $20,000 for local social organizations
University of Guelph students have donated more than $20,000 from their meal plans through the national student-run Meal Exchange charity to help fight hunger in Guelph and surrounding communities.
Students from 45 campuses across Canada donate to Meal Exchange through campus residences and dining halls. Meal plan donations are solicited from students, and co-ordinators work with food banks and community agencies to determine the most needed foods and products.
