People's Republic of Delicious

The People’s Republic of Delicious (PRD) is a campus group that offers healthy and affordable food alternatives for the people at the University of Ottawa. Every Wednesday, we receive a donation of cosmetically damaged food from a local grocer. The group then cooks it and offers a free vegan meal to the campus community. Follow us on Facebook to keep up with the PRD or to get involved.
