Andrew Chong (left) and Zsuzsi Fodor share food connections through OPIRG McMaster, and the Mac Farmstand.

Andrew is the current Farmstand Manager, and a member of OPIRG McMaster’s Food For Life working group. Zsuzsi is one of the founders of PEAS, an award winning former OPIRG working group that originated the idea of bringing a farmer’s market to campus. After preparing the way for FarmStand, Zsuzsi is now pursuing her MA in Food Systems Policy and Planning at the University of British Columbia, while Andrew builds on PEAS’ legacy by making local produce available to the McMaster community.

The experience of working for positive change locally and globally unites students and community members, and builds momentum to ensure the kind of world we want is built, one OPIRG project at a time.
