Campus Food Summit ~ August 5th – 7th, 2011 ~ University of Toronto

There’s a food revolution happening on university campuses, and we
want you to be part of it. SYC is partnering with Meal Exchange, a
national student food security organization, to present Esurio 2011: A
National Student Food Summit, this August 5th to 7th in Toronto.

Student activists from across Canada will gather at the University of
Toronto to share their struggles, solutions, and inspiration and
together craft a Campus Food Charter to guide our work in creating a
national student movement for a sustainable, equitable and just food
system. During the summit we will learn from leaders in the Canadian
sustainable food movement, tour some of Toronto’s most innovative food
projects, and generally have a great time. We can’t make the summit a
success without your participation, so please consider attending and
bringing your voice to the table.

SYC is offering free train travel to
and from the summit from anywhere along the VIA network and can help
you with fundraising efforts to cover the costs of your participation
through our Education Fund and fundraising support. The registration
deadline is July 29th and the summit starts on Friday August 5th at
9am. Full Registration details are available here.

At SYC we have recognized the growing student movement around food in
Canada and are excited to be helping catalyze and connect as we move
towards the 2011-2012 student year. We hope you can join us in Toronto
for a weekend that shall surely be revolutionary! And if you can’t but
want to share what you’ve got going on and get involved with the
campaign, please drop us a line to food@syc-cjs.org and tell us what’s
up!
