UVic students ‘trick or eat’

Pint-sized pumpkins won’t be the only ones knocking on your door this Halloween.

Students from the University of Victoria are again going house to house on Saturday, Oct. 31 to scare up food for the hungry.

The UVic Circle K International student club co-ordinates this annual event in support of the local Mustard Seed Food Bank as part of the national Meal Exchange’s Trick or Eat campaign.
