About Us - Hours of Operation

About Us

The Campus Food Bank was established in 1996 and is registered as a food bank with the Community Food Sharing Association. Many departments, clubs, societies and other groups hold food drives and fundraisers throughout the year in support of its activities. The Food Bank is staffed by volunteers, most of whom are students.

To utilize the Food Bank, students must provide their MCP number or, in the case of out-of-province students, a student number will suffice.

Hours of Operation

Our last date before Christmas for receipt of regular monthly hampers will be Thursday, December 13. We will reopen Sunday, January 6. 

Please note: There is construction going on at Corte Real, the home building of the Food Bank.  We do not anticipate any changes to our hours of operation during the construction period, other than October 23 - 27 when we will be fully closed.  Should this change, we will post the news here.  BUT, we are moved 2 doors down, to CA1000A.
