Student Experiences: Tech. Ed. Community Cupboard for sharing food and school supplies

September 25, 2018
By: Daniel Troisi

My name is Daniel Troisi and I am a B. Ed. Teacher Candidate in Technological Education at Queen’s. I am a Red-Seal Chef by trade and hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Guelph where I studied Hotel and Food Administration. My experience at the faculty has been defined by my role on ESS as the Tech-Ed representative, as the recipient of the D.E Loney prize upon graduation and, finally, by my leadership role in creating Queen’s Community Cupboard.

Queen’s Community Cupboard is a project designed and developed by student’s in Technological Education. Located on Student Street by Jean Royce Hall, its mission is to provide Queen's Faculty of Education with an accessible space, where non-perishable food items and new school supplies can be donated and taken on a perpetual basis.
