Food Trucks are Coming!

The Human Resources Department is pleased to announce that we will once again host a series of food trucks on campus this summer! We have assembled a robust schedule of new and exciting food trucks, as well as several of last year’s favorites. Please see the calendar below for further details:

Food Truck Calendar 2018

All food trucks will park in the Bagen Hall lot unless otherwise specified. As dates and times are subject to change, and as we may add one or two more trucks in August, please keep an eye on The Dome for food truck updates throughout the summer.

Additionally, the Sociology Department will host the Massachusetts Avenue Project mobile truck on campus throughout the summer. The purpose of the Massachusetts Avenue Project’s Growing Green Mobile Market is to serve areas of Buffalo where access to healthy, affordable and fresh food is limited. The truck is stocked with a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables and eggs. Naturally grown or certified organic produce is stocked whenever possible, and prices are generally lower than local grocery stores. The Mobile Market accepts cash, SNAP benefits (food stamps), and WIC Farmers  Market Nutrition Program checks. The truck will be parked in the Health Science lot along Delavan Avenue on Wednesday, June 27 and Wednesday, July 25 from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. More dates will be announced in The Dome.

We hope that you’ll enjoy all of the excellent food options heading your way this summer! If you have any questions, please contact Mary Braun at Ext. 2240.

Lactation Room Opens on Campus

As a breastfeeding-friendly employer, and in an effort to provide a welcoming environment for all members of the campus community and guests, Canisius College has established a Lactation Room in the basement level of Old Main, OM 009.

The Lactation Room is a private space where lactating mothers are welcome to pump milk or nurse. The room contains comfortable chairs, a small refrigerator for storing milk, and several electrical outlets.

The room is equipped with a numeric code lock on the door. Anyone who needs to use the space may request the code from Mary Braun, human resources assistant, at Ext. 2240 or at braun5@canisius.edu.

Please contact the Human Resources Department at Ext. 2240 with any questions and stay tuned for news of other Lactation Rooms opening around campus in the coming months.

Be The Light Youth Theology Institute

Just a few spots remain for BTLI 2018!  The application and nomination deadline has been extended to June 1.

At Be the Light, we study pressing issues of justice and injustice that we can witness right here in Buffalo, NY.  Then, with the help of Canisius College faculty, staff, students and friends, we learn and strategize about what it takes to address them wherever they are.  Through prayer, reflection and study, participants will learn about themselves, their world, and their place in it.  By becoming knowledgeable, faithful, and just leaders, they will become the change they want to see in the world.

BTLI 2018 will take place from July 23-28.  Again, we will accept applications until Friday, June 1, from current high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors.  Each applicant must also receive a nomination from an adult mentor.  Spots are limited.

The total cost of the program is $50, which includes all meals and accommodations in our air-conditioned dorm.  Scholarships to cover this cost are available.  Monetary assistance with out of town travel is not available.

For more information, along with links to our application form and nomination form, click here.

You may also e-mail us for more information at BetheLightInstitute@canisius.edu. One of our institute co-directors or graduate assistant will be happy to answer any questions you have!

Learn.  Lead.  Be the Light.
