Daniel and his class at the food cupboard

In 2018, Daniel Troisi, then a teacher candidate in technological education, led a group of  fellow students to create a community cupboard to address food insecurity at the Faculty.

A year after graduating, Daniel returned to Duncan McArthur Hall with his own students.
