December 11, 2013 To the Members of the Simon Fraser Student Society and the SFU Community, Over the summer of 2013, the SFSS Food Bank Working Group met with various stakeholders regarding SFU Student Services’ decision to close the SFU Food Bank and move to an information and referral model. On October 1, 2013, we launched the SFSS Emergency Food Bank

without referring students to distant, off-campus resources. Undergraduate students are a websurvey. More information is available at www.sfss.ca/foodbank. The SFSS Board of Directors passed a motion to renew the SFSS Emergency Food Bank have a wider access to fresh food and various dietary options previously unavailable through measure for undergraduate individuals or families as a means of supplementing their food availability during pressing situations. We are pleased that SFU Student Services has matched together collaboratively. We recognize the concerns regarding affordability, access and stigma around needs-based food services and are continuing to work with the university and other stakeholders in program does not address all food concerns and campuses. However, we truly look forward to continuing work and dialogue in order to implement the most effective and inclusive system possible to meet all forms of student food access needs. Your feedback and involvement are appreciated and will help shape the direction of this pro-

engage in dialogue about how we can further serve student food access needs. Sincerely, Simon Fraser Student Society Board of Directors
