The annual Selkirk College Gala is an opportunity for the community to come together in support for post-secondary learning and enjoy a fabulous evening of food, service and entertainment provided by the students in programs on Nelson’s Tenth Street Campus.

It's one of the highlights of the year at Nelson's Tenth Street Campus and this year's Selkirk College Gala 2016 fast approaches. Students are ramping up to host the region at Mary Hall on November 26 where a fantastic evening of food, friends and fun awaits.

Students from Selkirk College’s School of Hospitality and Tourism hosted about 200 people to Tenth Street Campus for a food forum aiming to help people struggling with poverty get protein into their meals.

Getting protein into your diet isn’t always easy for those struggling to make ends meet. An event hosted by West Kootenay Labour Council and Selkirk College offered up a meal for families – a free salmon buffet – in banquet style as an initiative aiming to ensure poverty doesn’t reach the plate.
