Phase two of Lakehead University Bus Service is full steam ahead! A collaborative project between the Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy (TBAFS) and Meal Exchange’s Students Feeding Change Project will run over the course of 8 weeks on a series of Fridays and Saturdays for all Lakehead University Students. The project will begin this Saturday February 9th until March 22nd.
TBAFS and the Students Feeding Change Project has continued its partnership with Lakehead University Student Union (LUSU) and welcomes Lakehead University’s International Student Services Centre as a partner.
Students will shop in the Westfort Area on Saturday February 9th with businesses offering 10-15% off discounts! The remaining three route dates will shop at three local grocery stores including Superstore, Walmart, and the Thunder Bay Country Market. The Coordinating Committee has focused on building partnerships with other grocery stores and organizations in the community to create sustainability for the project and are open to new organizations reaching out to partner on similar initiatives.
