I’m a student at the U of A, so seeing, up close, some of the issues with food scarcity on campus really motivates me! I take a shift at the Campus Food Bank – it’s practically my second home – and work to raise awareness of the Bank. I make great friends at the Campus Food Bank and get a great deal of personal fulfillment from helping others. In my opinion, volunteering strengthens Canada by creating a sense of community and unity amongst people, it helps people give back. Giving back also has its own rewards, not necessarily physical rewards, rather satisfaction in helping your fellow citizen!
