The SFUO food bank and the Sustainable Development Centre (SDC) are hosting free cooking classes for students on the third Thursday of every month. This SDC and the Student Federation of uOttawa (SFUO) initiative teaches students how to cook healthy meals for less by using products from the Good Food Box, an SFUO food bank program. Although these classes will usually be held in the UCU Terminus, locations and times may vary, so students are encouraged to check the SDC and SFUO Facebook events pages.
