Leadership Retreat

Are you a student leader? Are you committed to working toward a more just and sustainable food system on your campus?

This is your chance to get ready with the national campus food movement.

Meal Exchange is accepting applications to the National Student Food Summit: Student Leadership Retreat, August 14 - 17 2014!

About the movement: Food on campus is changing, and students are leading the way.Over the past five years, students on campuses across Canada have been making real changes that are improving their campus food systems. Meal Exchange is here to support this student movement: connecting student leaders to each other through our national network, equipping them with the latest resources and tools to make effective change, and helping them join forces with organizations working at the community, provincial, and national level.

About the Summit: This August 14 - 17th, we’re bringing together new, emerging, and seasoned student leaders who are transforming the culture of food and education on their campuses. Over this three-day retreat in a beautiful country setting just outside of Toronto, students will share strategies and best practices, receive hands-on training, and plan together for the upcoming year. Delegates will gain skills to be more effective leaders and become part of an inspiring national network of like-minded students.

About you: If you're serious about building a better food system on your campus, and ready to join a national network of student leaders to support your work over the 2014-2015 year, then we're serious about wanting you at the National Student Food Summit!
