U of M Food Bank
The UM Food Bank is open to in-person service. To be eligible to use the food bank, students must be enrolled (full or part-time) in the current academic term. You are welcome to use the services once every four weeks, at no cost to you, to help offset the costs of your groceries during times of financial distress.
The Food Bank will be closed from December 23rd to January 3rd for in-person usage and donor drop-off.
Fort Garry Campus Students: visit us in room 518 University Centre – please bring your UM student card & a reusable bag/backpack with you. The food bank is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Bannatyne Campus Students: please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a hamper. Please include your name & student number. Bannatyne Campus Student Services (BCSS) will send the request to the Food Bank main office for ordering. If ordered by 9:00 AM, the hamper will arrive next day to BCSS for pick up. Details will be provided to you when you submit your order.
