As of 2019, the People's Potato fee levy is $0.43 per credit for undergraduate students and $2.35 per semester for graduate students. Students can opt out of the fee levy during the fall semester from September 17th to the 30th by coming to the People's Potato kitchen from 9 to 11 am and from 1 pm to 3 pm. Students are invited to email us to make an appointment to opt-out if these times don't work for them.
If getting to our office is inaccessible to you due to disability, and you are registered with Concordia’s Access Centre, please contact us by phone or email to make special arrangements for fee reimbursements.
The People's Potato is a collectively-run soup kitchen that offers vegan meals to students and community members on a by-donation basis. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
We serve lunch during the fall and winter semesters from Monday to Friday between 12:30 and 2pm (except on statutory and school holidays). We are located at 1455 de Maisonneuve West on the 7th floor of Concordia University's Hall building.
