Trick or Eat - 2017
Trick or Eat:
Trick or Eat is Meal Exchange’s most successful program. It is a nationwide event that stretches coast to coast, from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island. In Ontario, there are 43 locations, including here at McMaster University. It involves costumed students who canvass their neighborhoods on Halloween to collect non-perishable food items for the local community. This fun and engaging night is supported by Meal Exchange’s national office and is a great way to engage with the community and promote volunteerism and hunger awareness. The event will be running Tuesday, Oct 31st, 2017 from 5-8pm in MUSC atrium.

All proceeds will be going to Living Rock. They are a Hamilton based organization that focuses on youth (ages 13-25, and any dependents). Last year alone, they had 32,000 visits and every week they produce 1,000 meals. Not only our they are food bank, but they also have focuses in Employment training, Housing searches and shelter, and parent coaching. Here is a link to learn more about them.
Trick or Eat is an event ran through a concept created by Meal Exchange. Meal Exchange is a national, youth-run non-profit organization that engages students by finding innovative solutions to the problem of local hunger. McMaster partners with Meal exchange every year to increase awareness of local hunger within the student body and to continue supporting the organization. We currently do not have a Meal Exchange Coordinator, if you are intersted in running the McMaster chapter, contact both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
