UNHack Challenge 1

Proposed by YorkU Food Services

How to provide better access to affordable food and increase food security on campus?

Challenge Summary:

Access to quality, nutritious, affordable and diverse food options on campus continues to be a challenge for post-secondary students across Ontario. Due to many university and college closures during the pandemic, vital services such as campus food assistance were reduced or frozen for students in need, coupled with reduction in employment opportunities, all which worsened the ability of students to meet their basic needs. Food insecurity can have detrimental effects on students’ academic performance and health. How can we provide better access to affordable food and increase food security on campus?

List of Helpful Resources:

YU Eats The YU Eats program at York University offers a range of healthy, sustainable and affordable food.

Transact Mobile Ordering The Transact Mobile Ordering app is an easy and convenient way to order food on campus.
