UPEI students are going door to door in surrounding neighborhoods to collect non-perishable food items on Wednesday, October 31 from 5–7 pm in support of UPEI’s food bank.
“Trick or Eat” is a national Hallowe’en food drive organized by Meal Exchange, a registered charity that empowers student leaders to address hunger in their communities. Since 1993, the charity has raised over $3M worth of food and engaged over 87,000 youth across North America.
Suggested items include: pasta products/pasta sauce, rice, canned meats and fish, peanut butter, cereal, canned vegetables, dry and canned soups, fruit juices, canned/powdered milk, baby food, diapers, beans and legumes.
Food and/or $1 donations to purchase a paper pumpkin for Bernardine Hall’s Hallowe’en pumpkin wall can also be donated to the group organizers. All proceeds will support UPEI’s Food Bank.

Help support UPEI’s food bank, and have a safe and happy Hallowe'en!
