Please, do not use our Open Hours for dropping off donations.  See below for details.

The Campus Food Bank accepts donations of both food and money.

We are a registered charity and can give tax receipts for cash donations. If you wish to make such a donation, you can phone the Food Bank at 864-3467, or e-mail, to arrange pickup of the funds.

To donate food, you can drop off items at our site, in Corte Real, room CA1000K, in Burton's Pond Apartments, on campus. Please, for the privacy of our food recipients, we ask that you do not drop off food during our hours of operation, as these posted hours are only meant for food hamper pickup.  Instead, contact us at our email address,  or call us at 864-3467.  We will arrange a mutually convenient delivery time for both you and a volunteer.  We can also pickup if necessary. You can also drop non-perishable items off outside the door to the Food Bank during our closed hours. Our volunteers will move these donated items into our room during their next visit.

If you wish to donate food and wonder if there are particular items we need, items from the list on the suggested items for food drives page are always ones we can use.

Employee/Retiree Donations

If you are a current employee or retiree, you can give to us via payroll deductions.  We have a paper form for this, which you would need to print, sign and mail to Human Resources - Payroll.  Online giving is not available at this time.  As the form notes, the amount given will show in the charitable donation box of your T4.  There will not be a separate receipt from us. 

In Memoriam Donations

If you want to give a donation to the Food Bank in memory of someone, we can give you a tax receipt, and also send an acknowledgement to the family of the deceased person. Just contact us by phone or e-mail as listed above.
