Support the Sharing Shop at the 2020 President’s Breakfast

Summary

To show support for Fanshawe students who may be in need, we are asking our Fanshawe colleagues to support our on-campus food bank, The Sharing Shop.

Vision

The President’s Breakfast is an annual gathering where staff come together and hear exciting updates from President Peter Devlin as we prepare to kick off a new academic year. Each year, Fanshawe staff show tremendous generosity and community spirit by bringing a donation of non-perishable food when they attend the breakfast. Over the last few years, our staff has generously donated non-perishable food, toiletries and money to the Sharing Shop—Fanshawe’s on-campus food bank.

This year, the President’s Breakfast will take place virtually, but the need is still there. Many of our students are experiencing financial difficulty in the wake of COVID-19, and we are inviting our staff to continue their support. Funds raised through this campaign will ensure The Sharing Shop can stock nutritious food for students who are in need. Plus, the Fanshawe College Alumni Association will match all donations. This means for every $1 you donate via this campaign, $2 goes directly to help students in need.

Impact

Each year, approximately 10% of the Fanshawe College student population uses The Sharing Shop
when they are in need of food, toiletries or cleaning supplies. The Sharing Shop stocks canned goods, non-perishable food, frozen vegetables and fresh produce. In the Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 Semesters, 3,500 items were handed out to students.

They also post recipes to their website that students can follow to create nutritious and enjoyable meals with the items they receive. We know that students sometimes face financial difficulty during their time at Fanshawe. We also know that the COVID-19 pandemic may have added to that stress as students may not have been able to work during the summer as anticipated to allow them to save money. Fanshawe students who are most in need will directly benefit from this campaign by having access to food and other necessities and by knowing that the Fanshawe community cares about them.
