UFV Food Bank

The UFV-SUS Food Bank addresses food insecurity amongst our UFV community by providing nutritious food and promoting healthy eating, in an accessible, inclusive, respectful and sustainable manner.

Skipping meals because you can't afford food?

We understand that hunger doesn't just suck - it can become an obstacle that disrupts your whole life. We can help.

The UFV-SUS Food Bank provides food hampers to UFV students in need. The food hamper program was created to help students in emergency situations or whom are having difficulty purchasing food to avoid hunger. The program is not for supplementary purposes and is not a free grocery program.

We serve current UFV students and their families through a partnership program between Student Life, the UFV Student Union Society, and Archway Food Bank.

Your first name, last name, and family size will be shared with Archway Food Bank as we are a satellite campus and they require that information. If you don't want your personal information shared with Archway Food Bank, please do not complete this form. You can contact us at with any questions.

Hamper requests may take 3-5 business days to be fulfilled. Please click on the "Hamper Request Form" link below to submit a request.

** Please note that we are experiencing delays due to the snow & campus closures. Please reach out to your local community food bank if you are in an emergency food situation **
