Abstract

As the calendar brings us closer to the beginning of the holiday season, some students may be thinking less about celebrating the holidays, and more about being able to afford to properly feed themselves over the break between semesters.

The University of Regina Student Union (URSU)'s Pantry serves the University community with pantry events held every two weeks with the aim of alleviating the pressures of food insecurity on students. It's an issue many on campus struggle with. Rising costs of food, housing, school, and other necessities all contribute to stretched budgets, and the stress of juggling it all can weigh on students as they work towards completing their degrees. "The combined pressure contributes to physical and mental deterioration,"says Cassidy Daskalchuk, URSU's Food Security Coordinator.
