I’m Veronica Dirk-Pothier (she/her) and I’m very excited to be this year’s Food Centre Coordinator! I am currently completing my BA in Psychology with a Crime, Law, and Justice Studies minor! I am also completing certificates in Criminology and Addiction & Ethics, Justice, and Law. I chose these programs because I am very passionate about social justice and I wanted to explore these concepts from different viewpoints.
I’m excited to bring my passion and experience in community programs to help address the issue of food insecurity on campus and with students as a whole! I’m looking forward to promoting accessible services to combat student hunger and help destigmatize access to food resources!
The USSU Food Centre was established in 2003 by the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union, in conjunction with the Saskatoon Food Bank in response to hunger on campus. Student hunger has become more prevalent because of increased tuition and limited student funding.
Students holding a valid Saskatchewan Health Card and Student ID can request an emergency food hamper at the Food Centre located in the USSU Main Office, in the Place Riel Student Centre.
