Does the institution host a food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource focused on alleviating food insecurity, hunger and poverty among students?:

A brief description of the food bank, pantry, or equivalent resource:

Food Bank:The Student Nutrition Assistance Program run jointly by the College's Student Association and the Culinary Arts program is reducing food waste and helping its students eat more healthy meals. Untouched meals created by student chefs are donated to the student food bank. The unwanted meals go to George Brown students who are struggling financially through a partnership with the school’s Student Association. All donated food is packaged in single or family-sized portions and sent to the school’s food bank, where students can pick up restaurant-quality meals. Although every effort is made to minimize food waste, other left over food from the School's food Inventory Control Centre is also sent to local shelters.
