UFV-SUS food bank

If you're a UFV student who needs food security support, the UFV-SUS Food Bank is designed for you. You're not alone: food insecurity among university students is common and we want to help you feel empowered to access food security programs on campus.


Guidelines for using UFV's Food Bank

Who can access the food bank?

  • UFV students enrolled in at least one course in the current semester
  • The goal of the Food Bank at UFV is food security for UFV students. We ask that you only access the UFV-SUS Food Bank if you need support in order to reach this food security goal.

How often can I use the food bank?

  • You can submit a new request every 10 days.
  • You can request a food hamper a maximum of 7 times per semester.
