UFV-SUS 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. This program is a partnership with UFV's Student Life department and the Student Union Society (SUS).

The UFV-SUS Food Bank has moved back to physical food hampers that can be picked up from the Abbotsford or Chilliwack campuses, beginning September 13th, 2021.

Guidelines for usage:

  • Students must be taking classes in the Fall 2021 semester.
  • Students can submit a new request every seven (7) days.
  • Students can request a maximum of six (6) times per semester.
  • Requests can take up to three (3) business days to be filled.
  • The UFV-SUS Food Bank reserves the right to cancel any requests that don't follow the guidelines listed above.

This is an emergency program meant to supplement, not replace, existing supports. If you are in need of greater financial support, please contact UFV's Financial Aid team to see what options might be available.
