Practicum Office Hosts Food Security Workshop

In May 2018, the FSSH Practicum Office hosted a Community Engagement Project for students interested in learning more about sustainability, food insecurity and homelessness in Durham Region. Community Engagement Projects are experiential learning opportunities that integrate service in the community with intentional learning activities. 

Ten students from the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities (FSSH) spent two days working alongside staff and volunteers from partner organizations, Durham Outlook and The LivingRoom Community Art Studio. Through direct service and conversations with program participants, students learned more about how organizations in the Durham Region are working to address issues of poverty head-on through innovative programming and wraparound support.
