York Community Kitchen

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Regenesis @ York is seeking the establishment of a community kitchen at the Keele Campus (Glendon Campus in the future). The community kitchen will provide kitchen access to those who lack sufficient kitchen facilities in residence and to student clubs who wish to prepare food for their events. Access to the community kitchen will also extend to farmers from the Black Creek Community Farm, Toronto’s largest urban farm, who will supervise students use of the kitchen in exchange for use of the space. This will faciliate community building and help foster relationships.[/vc_column_text]

YorkU Free Store

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Free Stores are spaces for individuals to reduce landfill waste by offering items that they no longer use to the public through a community market without a transaction. There are two elements to the Free Store, education and awareness on re-directing items that would otherwise be considered waste, and re-purposing such items for traditional or creative use. Independent, student-run Free Stores exist at other universities in Ontario, such as Trent University in Peterborough.[/vc_column_text]
