UFV Food Bank

Food Hamper Program

The UFV-SUS Student 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.

We serve all registered UFV students and their families through a partnership program between Student Life and the UFV Student Union Society.

Please note: The UFV-SUS Food Bank will be closed for the holidays from December 22, 2018 to January 2, 2019.

The deadline to apply for a hamper before the holiday break is Monday, December 17 for Chilliwack and Tuesday, December 18 for Abbotsford. The last day to pick up hampers at either campus is Friday, December 21.

Angel Tree

The SUS Angel Tree program gives students, faculty, and administrators at UFV an opportunity to make the holiday season special for the children of UFV students. Many UFV students with children face financial challenges – books, tuition, and living expenses – that can make the holiday season a stressful time. 

To learn more about the Angel Tree program, click here or contact the Student Union Society in person (S1109, Building S in Abbotsford), by email (susangeltree@ufvsus.ca) or by phone (604-864-4613).
