Eat, Think, Vote!

What is Eat Think Vote? A community event to meet your federal candidates and tell them your concerns about and ideas for food and the food system in Canada.

Food insecurity is common among students, especially given our tight budgets. At SFU in particular, there has been a high demonstrated need for food assistance, evidenced by grocery support programs for both undergrad and grad students that are always used up and have an ever-increasing budget to meet demand.

We are thrilled to announce that an Eat Think Vote event will be happening at SFU Burnaby on October 15, 2015. Eat Think Vote is a series of food events across the country to engage citizens and candidates in the upcoming federal election on making a national food policy a reality in Canada. We are joining thousands of individuals and organizations across the country who want to make food a critical issue in the federal election this fall.
 
Our local federal candidates will gather with the SFU community over refreshments, and listen to the community’s concerns around food. We especially want to discuss food security, and the affordability and accessibility of food. Your input is crucial in making these discussions fruitful. You can find out more about these issues on the Eat Think Vote website.
 
At the end of the event we hope all candidates will take the pledge for a national food policy.

Let’s start the conversation early! Take our survey (http://websurvey.sfu.ca/survey/222064155), prepare your questions in advance, and spread the word via social media. #EatThinkVote @FoodSecureCAN
