Winter 2019 Opt-Out

Opt-Outs:

The Loaded Ladle receives a levy of $4.50 per semester for every full-time member of the Dalhousie  and King’s Students Unions. Every fall and winter we hold an “opt out” period, where students can request that we refund their levy. However, students who choose to refund their levy revoke their privileges with the Loaded Ladle and can no longer access Ladle services, vote in meetings or elections, or request Loaded Ladle documents, meeting minutes, or policy. We don’t recommend that you opt out, but you can if you want.

 

Opt Out Period

This year, the Ladle’s Winter opt-out period will be held from February 25- March 1. During this time, you can ask us to refund the Winter semester levy of $4. Students are required to present their Dal Card when opting out of the Loaded Ladle. Look for our tables around noontime or visit our office in Room B24 of the SUB.

Lunch and Learn #2: Commercialization of Food

Tuesday, November 20, 1-2pm Loaded Ladle serving area, Dal SUB

Another informal lunch and learn with the Loaded Ladle. If you want to join our discussion, you can jump to the front of the Ladle line!
We’ll be chatting about food as a basic human right and how food has become commercialized, as well as looking at ways people are pushing back against this. We’ll be sitting and eating together in the comfy chairs by the windows until around 2:00; feel free to come and go if you need to go to class!

Dalhousie Oxfam Presents: The Hunger Banquet

Thursday, November 22, 5:30-7pm, Dal SUB                                                                                     Solidarity Serving by the Loaded Ladle

The Hunger Banquet is a banquet-style meal and advocacy event. While sharing a meal together you will have the chance to engage in a mediated discussion and presentation on food security both locally and abroad. We’d love to have your voice as part of our conversation about local and global food inequalities and advocacy for Oxfam.

This event will feature guest speakers from Feed Nova Scotia and Oxfam Canada. Donations of non-perishable food items for Feed NS food banks are much appreciated!

The Dalhousie and King’s Oxfam Society is a small group that works to raise awareness on global inequalities in resources and aid, particularly for females. We host events, set up petitions and discuss local and global issues in relation to Oxfam campaigns that we believe should have more exposure on campus.

*PLEASE ONLY RSVP ON EVENTBRITE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO ATTEND AS WE NEED A DEFINITE NUMBER OF ATTENDEES FOR THE EVENT TO RUN SMOOTHLY.

Can’t wait to see you there!
