Food for Queers
Community-led Campaigns: #NoHungryQueers Pride ‘21September 1, 2021
For the 2021 Pride season, Food for Queers was fortunate to receive support from local community partners who marked the pride season by not only recognizing the value of supporting grassroots initiatives within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, but also directly supporting QE’s Food for Queers initiative. Knowing we had community partners boosting awareness and encouraging contributions at a time when we’re running at full capacity made a world of difference!
We’d like to thank our community partners:
- Pride is Right Trivia - Karen Simpson & Learners
- Libro Credit Union - Central branch
- Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC)
- Society of Graduate Students (Grad Club)
Since Food for Queers launched, we’ve been fortunate to continue to receive the support of community partners, dedicated team members and most importantly a crew of amazing volunteers who have stacked, packed and delivered countless boxes of food through heavy rains, snow storms and everything else we’ve all been through these past 18 months. It’s this level of kindness along with the generosity of individuals who’ve made financial contributions that ensure Food for Queers continues to support folks in our local 2SLGBTQIA+ communities struggling with food insecurity.
We would like to give a special thank you to Anthea Williams and Karen Simpson, both of whom have continued to use their resources in order to facilitate support and contributions towards Food for Queers. While we cannot list all the wonderful folks who have shown kindness and generosity, we thank every single person who has supported the Food for Queers Program. We see you sending over those extra few dollars, sharing those extra cans in the cupboard, hustling your crew to do the same, and we thank you!
Queer Events would also like acknowledge the Food for Queers intitiative would not have been possible without the leadership and direction provided by our very own Alicia Samuel who in the early days of what was a very challenging time for everyone had the foresight and commitment to ensure this vital community program was in place for our local 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
