November 3, 2016

Durham College has officially named its Centre for Food after W Galen Weston in recognition of a $1M grant from the W Garfield Weston Foundation. The grant will be used to create $100K-worth of scholarships and bursaries, develop new research and testing programs related to food product development and food processing studies, and purchase equipment that will benefit research programs related to agriculture and agri-food products. “On behalf of the college, in particular the hundreds of students studying in our CFF programs, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the W Garfield Weston Foundation for its generosity,” said Durham President Don Lovisa. “The Weston family has long supported the field-to-fork concept and we are extremely proud to have [W Galen Weston's] name linked permanently to the CFF.” Durham
