Our Fee-Levy Groups
What is a Fee Levy Group?
A fee levy group is defined as following:
“[…] student organizations and initiatives at Concordia University that are student-elected through the referendum process. Fee levy groups are made up of Concordia undergraduate (and sometimes graduate students) as well as community members from wider Montreal communities. Fee levy groups receive all or part of their operating budgets from a per-credit Concordia student fee levy. Fee levy groups are autonomous from the administrations of Concordia University, the CSU, the GSA, and all academic bodies and associations.” – from http://concordiacommunity.org/about/

The People’s Potato is a vegan soup kitchen at Concordia University – a student initiated project that was founded in 1999 in order to address student poverty and the lack of affordable food options on campus. We offer by donation meals every weekday during the fall and winter semesters, excluding holidays*.
With the help of our dedicated volunteers, we serve more than 500 meals daily to students and community members. We are committed to education around food politics and anti-oppression, and to the broader goals of social and environmental justice
