Canteen Week was an event organized by the Mother Teresa Vidyarthini Manch in the college as a fun activity with a social cause. The intended purpose was to generate income through the setting up of food stalls by the students, the proceeds of which went to help the underprivileged sections of the society. This was to be a contribution to our society as members of the St. Vincent family. The students also got a firsthand lesson in economics while setting up the stalls, buying materials, selling them, advertising and arranging the logistics. The students enjoyed this event and learnt valuable practical lessons. Simultaneously the “Mercy” week was also organized wherein the students collected and donated various toiletries, food grains, edibles and stationaries for the underprivileged.
