Comfort food for the York community – Division of Students Cup-of-Soup Event for United Way

You’re invited to enjoy a hot cup of soup & roll while supporting the United Way!

As the days get shorter and your thoughts turn to keeping warm while the rain falls, it’s good to know that on Friday, November 9 you’ll be able to wrap your hands around a steaming cup of soup and a roll – for just $3!

Lucy Fromowitz, Vice-Provost Students, along with teams from the Division of Students, will be serving warm comfort food in support of the York Cares United Way campaign. Connecting our staff with our students and listening to their diverse perspectives is a cornerstone of our values as a Division and there is no better way to interact with students than over an affordable, hearty lunch as the season turns into winter.

The cup-of-soup event is an opportunity for staff to engage with students and each other away from “the office” in a casual atmosphere. Soup-lovers can choose from a cup of vegetarian, chicken noodle or cream of vegetable soup and roll (plain, wheat, multigrain) for only $3.
