FOOD BANK

The Students' General Association at Laurentian University is here to support and advocate for students. Our focus is on students' needs and wants. As a part of our mission the SGA Emergency Food Bank provides access to food for students in urgent need. ​

Given the recent soar in food bank use, coupled with the limited resources available, the SGA has implemented a new system to ensure equitable use of the food bank. We are implementing these changes to secure the long term viability of the food bank, ensure its proper use, and make sure all students have access to this emergency service when they need it.

 

In light of this, we ask that students looking to access the food bank fill out a short form, which can be found hereThis form will help us to understand who is accessing the food bank, how often, and how we can better serve our students. Once you have submitted the form, we will respond to your request during our business hours. We will inform you of the outcome of your application and when you can come in to access the food bank.
