Food Bank

The History:
The Students’ Association Student Food Bank was established in 1995.
It is one of over 50 food banks found on university and college campuses across Canada.
Since 2005 we have fed 2000 people.
In 2016-2017 we created 223 hampers and fed 344 people – this was our busiest year to date.

The Info:
The SA Food Bank provides a 10% student discount on groceries at Sobeys Village Mall, 5% off at Sobeys South, and 5% off at IGA Eastview.
Students can access the food bank once per term and can access a seasonal hamper in December.

If You Need a Hamper…
Call the Student Connect Centre at (403) 342-3254 or drop by their office in room 1102 from
12:30pm – 3:30pm, Monday – Thursday.
Clients are required to be a member of the Students’ Association of Red Deer Polytechnic and are requested to bring a valid up-to-date ID card when picking up the requested hamper. Hampers will be made available as quickly as possible. However, we retain the right to request that a client wait 24 hours before the hamper is made available.
Any personal information we collect is kept confidential

If You Would Like to Donate…
Donations of both monetary and unopened, non-perishable food donations are needed and very much appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the SA office or added to the Student Food Bank “soup cans” around campus (Soup Cans are located at Starbucks, The Lift, The Far Side Bar & Grill, and the Students’ Association office.)
Food donations can also be placed in the Food Bank Collection Box located by the Main Gym.
