This fall, customers of SPUD.ca will have the opportunity to help fill Vancouver Community College’s (VCC) Gathering Space Pantry.
A new initiative by VCC’s Indigenous Education and Community Engagement department, the Gathering Space Pantry provides healthy and accessible snacks and grocery items for Indigenous students who are impacted by food insecurity.
