Food Bank


Food Bank Statement

ALL services provided through UOSU, including our foodbank are in place to support the undergraduate student population at the University of Ottawa.

While we recognize the growing need for emergency food access across the city, our foodbank is experiencing a 258% increase in access for 2024. Thus, our priority remains committed to supporting food insecure members of the University of Ottawa community, with a focus on UOSU members.

We will continue to ask for proof of enrollment at all foodbank visits. If you are not eligible, our team will happily refer you to your local foodbank.

About Us

The University of Ottawa Students’ Union (UOSU), in collaboration with the Ottawa Food Bank operates a volunteer-run Food Cupboard at 85 University Private.

Its purpose is to provide emergency food relief to uOttawa students and their families. We also advocate for food security.

Note: The Food Bank will be closed from December 22nd, 2023 to January 7th, 2024, and will open again on January 8th, 2024.
