The Douglas Students’ Union operates an Emergency Food bank to help you get through to the next pay cheque or loan disbursement, and for those needing short term assistance. To ensure the safety of our staff and all our members by minimizing the amount of traffic in our building and face to face interactions, we have transitioned the service online. The Food Bank will be available to all members starting Sept 19 with confirmation of enrolment. Members will be able to access the Food Bank twice per semester (Fall, Winter, Summer), but only once per month. The last day the food bank is open is the last day of exams. Fall semester – December 17, 2022.

To access the DSU Emergency Food Bank, please fill out the form below. You will be emailed a confirmation email to pick up your package of non-perishable food items. You will receive a response within 2 business days. Please email , if you require further support or have any questions.

Students are required to show valid Douglas College proof of enrolment and be a current DSU member.
