RRU Food Bank Moved to the Recreation Centre

The Food Bank is a Student Services initiative that serves our most vulnerable students on campus. Students may visit the Food Bank as often as needed, no questions asked, and may take as much food as they like (within reason).

The Food Bank is not meant to replace a forgotten lunch or fully feed a student for the school year, but aims to help out during short-term times of need. For longer-term assistance, a list of local food banks and meal programs can be found here.               

The Food Bank is physically located in the RRU Recreation Centre and may be accessed anytime during operating hours. Ask staff at the reception counter to borrow the key.

Operating hours:
Monday to Friday: 5:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Saturday: 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Sunday: 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Statutory Holidays: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Students leaving residency donate the primary supply of non-perishable food to the Food Bank. Food is collected via bins located in residency lounges by our custodial staff and delivered to the Recreation Centre. Several times a year, depending on demand and funding available, Financial Aid & Awards staff will stock the shelves with food purchased at Costco and other wholesale shops. 

Donations of non-perishable food or cash for the Financial Aid & Awards shopping trip are gratefully accepted at the Library or Recreation Centre.

Please contact the Student Services Financial Aid & Awards team with any questions or comments.
