Dalhousie Student Union Food Bank

Free Food for Students and Staff

The Food Bank welcomes all members of the Dalhousie Community. We are also open to students from other Universities in the HRM, just be sure to bring your student ID with you.

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, just bring your dalcard with you!

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 two weeks, as our food bank has a limited supply.
