October 9, 2015

Mount Royal University has signed a MOU with the Calgary Food Bank in an effort to foster hunger-free communities. The agreement will enhance the longstanding partnership between two organizations by helping them share knowledge, expertise, and resources. The partnership is also in keeping with MRU’s strategic mission, which seeks among other things to develop new teaching, learning, and research partnerships with community organizations. "Everyone benefits from experiential learning opportunities," said MRU President David Docherty. "This partnership enriches the student experience, contributes to health and nutrition research, and makes a positive impact in the community. … We look forward to further addressing the important issue of food poverty in Calgary."
