Food Crisis

Are you low on funds? Low on food?

Some departments have emergency food boxes, especially near the end of semesters and close to the Christmas season. These are strictly by donation and cannot always be counted on!

The Student Union provides Financial Aid Services with food vouchers which can be redeemed at local supermarkets for food. Please contact your Student Union 250-754-8866 or Financial Aid 250-740-6423 for further information and availability.
