About the Challenge

With our experiences of providing free and nutritious food for all students on the main Sault Ste. Marie campus, we understand the issues that arise when balancing your course load, work and family life and sustaining a healthy diet. We have come a long way, and want to continue doing this work yet we are in need of your help! Our campaign aims to raise funds to purchase soil, materials, seedlings and/or seeds for foods to-be-grown in our campus garden, and for foods available within the pantry to all students year-round.

Our challenge asks students to team up in pairs of two or a maximum group of three people, prepare and go out into the community and attain donations for our services. We see this as a great way to have students directly involved in the raising of funds for both The People’s Garden and AUSU Food Pantry, and a great way to host healthy competition within our community. Teams are asked to compete between February 14th until March 14th, 2019, giving students a full month to try and win grand prizes!

What’s at stake, you ask?

The top three teams will win one of three grand prizes, including sponsored cash prizes, gift certificates and swag baskets! Teams are asked to collect their donations until March 13th, 2019 in order to award the winning teams. This exciting challenge is a first for Algoma University and we wish for it to be a great success!


We invite all teams to register before February 13th, 2019, by emailing the AUSU Food Pantry coordinator at [email protected],ca or emailing The People’s Garden at [email protected].

We simply require your team members’ names, team name, and contact emails. Please register to secure your spot and to enter in a door prize raffle for our Competitors’ Meeting to be held on Thursday February 14th, 2019 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, in NW200 (Fishbowl).

Our team is very excited to meet our competing teams, and we hope to see those interested on February 14th, 2019!

For any questions, comments or concerns, please email us using the emails provided above, or stop in to the AUSU Food Pantry, in NW103! Thank you for your time and patience.
