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.

Food Hamper Program

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.

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

Hamper requests may take 3-5 business days to be fulfilled.
