Future of campus food banks uncertain
There's concern that changes to post-secondary tuition fees could lead to school food banks losing money.
The so-called student choice initiative the Ford government announced in January allows college and university students to opt out of fees that fund campus groups, student newspapers and clubs.
Some fees remain mandatory, such as for walk-safe programs, health and counselling, athletics and recreation, and academic support.
Student unions don't yet know what their members have opted not to fund, so it's too soon to say whether the food banks will be in trouble.
But some worry that if students opt not to give money to the food banks, some may go hungry.
