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

The Campus Food Bank will remain open during the paving of the parking lot at Corte Real. We do not anticipate that the work will cause any closed days.  Entry will be via the front door of the building, as usual.  You have to walk along a path on the right hand side of the building, there is small signage there showing this. The path is a bit rough so you may wish to leave small kids at home, if possible.

Receiving food hampers from us:

The Campus Food Bank is open:

  • Sunday from 3:00 - 5:00pm
  • Monday from 3:30 - 5:30pm and 7:00 - 8:00pm
  • Thursday from 3:30 - 5:30pm and 7:00 - 8:00pm

The Food Bank is open year-round, except for a few weeks over the Christmas Break. Dates for that closure are posted in December. We are also closed for most statuatory holidays - these tend to be mainly Monday holidays when there are no classes. We post those closure dates shortly in advance of the day.

The Campus Food Bank is located in the basement of Corte Real, Burton's Pond Apartments,  on Memorial University's St. John's Campus. We are in room CA1000, next to the new elevator.  The first floor of our building was recently renumbered and our old number of CA1000K  was changed to drop the K.  We are still in the same room.  We are building 40B on this campus map.
