Nick Saul Awarded Honorary Doctorate from Ryerson University
In recognition of his commitment to community organizing and social justice, Nick Saul has been awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Laws from Ryerson University’s Faculty of Community Services.
During his 15-year tenure as executive director of The Stop Community Food Centre, Saul transformed the organization from a small food bank into a thriving community hub. Saul is now the co-founder, president, and CEO of Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC), a national organization that builds food-focused community centres in low-income neighbourhoods.
Metcalf has provided core support to The Stop since 2003, and to CFCC since its origins. In 2011, Saul wrote “In Every Community a Place for Food: The Role of the Community Food Centre in Building a Local, Sustainable, and Just Food System” with Kathryn Scharf and Charles Levkoe as part of Metcalf’s Food Solutions publication series.
