There are a lot of things students need to worry about; where your next meal is coming from shouldn’t be one of them. George Brown students in financial need can access food supplies to supplement their groceries at the Student Food Bank. After registering, students can make appointments across all three convenient locations.


How to:

  • Register: Students can register and make appointments across all three convenient locations.
  • Renew: Each new semester, a new timetable needs to be shown to continue with the service. Students may also be asked to re-register at the start of each new academic year (September).
  • Use it effectively: Non-perishables, perishables and from time to time, fresh produce is available. Some household products may also be distributed. Using the food bank to pick up only one or two snack items is strongly discouraged. The food bank is to be treated as an emergency food service and is meant for those students who struggle financially.
