The Royal Roads Food Bank is a Student Services initiative that serves our most vulnerable students on campus. It is meant to be operated in a “no questions asked” style and with the highest degree of respect and sensitivity. Students may visit the food bank as often as required during a short-term time of need, and may take as much food as they like within reason and with understanding that other students have need of the service. It is not meant to replace a forgotten lunch or be a regular source of food.

The food bank is up and running in its new home at in the Learning and Innovation Centre (LIC). The shelves need fillling and we would greatly appreciate any and all donations of non-perishable food.

Where is it?

The food bank is now located in a locked cabinet at the base of the central staircase in the LIC. Students can borrow the key from the Guest Services desk in the lobby of the LIC.

How does it operate?

The primary supply of non-perishable food is donated by students leaving residency. It is collected via bins located in residency lounges by our custodial staff and delivered to the food bank. Several times a year, depending on demand and funding available, Financial Aid and Awards (FAA) staff will stock the shelves with food purchased at Costco and other wholesale shops. 

Donations of non-perishable food are gratefully accepted in a bin by the food bank.

Feedback is welcome!
