'Buy a Student Breakfast' program at the U of L
What started as a small idea grew into a campus-wide initiative that resulted in more than 700 University of Lethbridge students receiving a free breakfast this week. The 'Buy a Student Breakfast' program started with the University's Office of Alumni Relations as a way to engage its alumni with the current U of L student body.
For a $10 donation, people were able to buy two students a breakfast sandwich and a large coffee or tea from the Campus Coffee Company in the Students Union Building. Volunteers handed out the purchased vouchers to students as they made their way to classes. Students then expressed their thanks via social media and the hashtag #thanksabrunch.
