Food insecurity is real and happening among students enrolled at NSCAD. Nearly 40% of post-secondary students in Canada report experiencing food insecurity. Paired with rising inflation, food insecurity is one of the most urgent challenges facing NSCAD students today.
This is why NSCAD is once again collaborating with the J & W Murphy Foundation and other Nova Scotia universities to improve food security for students on #GivingTuesday. The J & W Murphy Foundation has generously pledged to MATCH all donations up to $3,500 to increase the total campaign impact and help our students afford healthy food during the holiday season and give them the best chance to excel at NSCAD.
A gift from you can help our students afford healthy food giving them the nutrition they need to achieve their amazing potential. Together, on #GivingTuesday, we can help our artists and makers focus on their work—not on where their next meal is coming from.
