About Food Centre

The Food Centre is a CUSA service centre offering a variety of programs with the aim of promoting food security for members of the Carleton campus community. The Food Centre operates an emergency food assistance program for students, faculty, staff, and alumni in need of temporary assistance meeting their food necessities.

Users may visit up to a maximum of two times per month and are required to bring their student or alumni card (or other identifying information), in addition to plastic bags and egg cartons in order to pick up their emergency assistance hamper. The Food Centre also runs food drives and other initiatives and events to support the Ottawa Food Bank, and increase awareness of food security and poverty issues in our community.

Food Centre

The Good Food Box program, which works with local farmers to provide students with $5, $10, $15, or $20 boxes of fresh produce for a significantly reduced cost compared to retail. The Food Centre’s Food Security services in addition to events such as Trick or Eat, support the ongoing efforts of all food banks in the Ottawa region. Find out more here.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program provides food hampers to students in need. To request a hamper, students must fill out the Hamper Request Form and bring it in to the centre. Students requesting a hamper for the first time must also fill out the Food Bank Intake Form and bring it on their first visit. Hampers must be requested 24 hours prior to pick up. Students are limited to one food request every three weeks, and they should bring 2-3 bags when they pick up their hamper.
