The LFS Community Dinner is a licensed event; therefore ATTENDEES MUST BE 19 YEARS OF AGE and provide two pieces of ID (one must be government-issued w/photo) at the event. In addition, we cannot promise that our event will be nut-free.

This year we are partnering with the AMS Food Bank to pay it forward to the greater UBC Community. We will be collecting voluntary donations at the event. Check out http://www.ams.ubc.ca/services/food-bank/inventory-donations/ for a list of items that they are in short supply of.

Sponsored Tickets!
We would like all students to know that the annual LFS|US – Dietetics Community Dinner is an event open to everyone! Recognizing that times may be tight, and some students may not be able to afford the ticket pricing, we have offered opportunities for LFS faculty and staff to generously sponsor a limited number of tickets to our event. If you would like more information about sponsored tickets, please email Student Services at students@landfood.ubc.ca.
