Dalhousie Student Union Food Bank

Free Food for Students and Staff

The Food Bank welcomes all members of the Dalhousie Community. We are aware that food insecurity is a problem in the student community. Sometimes money doesn't come in, loans get delayed, or you've got other things to deal with. Don't worry, whether you need long term assistance or just a few meals to get by, please come visit us. All students and staff are welcome, no questions asked.

To make sure there is enough to go around, we ask that you take only what you need. We ask that everyone using the food bank take only one reusable bag per week, as our food bank has a limited supply.

Our hours of operation change frequently, so please check the hours weekly to confirm when we are open. 


The Food Bank is an incredible resource that survives because of volunteers. Please come join the team! For more information click here!


You can find us in the basement of the SUB, beside the Health Plan office and opposite from Campus Copy.
