Acadia’s world-class research facilities rival the largest institutions. With our unique location and small campus, Acadia fosters collaboration across disciplines and with industry, community, and sister institutions.
Wolfville, NS, December 12, 2018 -- On Saturday, November 3rd Chartwells at Acadia University, the Acadia Students’ Union (ASU) and the ASU Food Cupboard held the first Funds for the Food Cupboard fundraising event, raising a total of $2,000 in support of the on-campus student-run foodbank, the Food Cupboard. Chartwells matched all funds raised.
"The Funds for the Food Cupboard event held at the Axe Bar and Grill was a great success,” said Caitlin Sanderson, ASU Food Cupboard Coordinator. “This event was not only about raising money but it also started the conversation of student food insecurity here at Acadia University. By holding and participating in events such as this one, we can work together to build and support a community that is food secure.”
