While all donations are valued, monetary donations are highly encouraged since they allow us flexibility to purchase what is most needed at a certain time. Monetary donations can also be brought or mailed to our office. If you are donating by cheque, please write it to “Campus Food Bank.”  Please refer to the “Contact Us” form for full address and/or office hours.

Tax Receipts can be issued for a minimum donation of $20 made by cash or cheque. Every donation helps our mission to fight hunger on the University of Alberta campus.
If you prefer to use a credit card to donate, please do so by visiting CanadaHelps.org (click on the image below). They will issue your tax receipt as well:

Non-perishable Food and Toiletry Donations
These may be dropped off outside our office anytime in our donation bin.

While all food and toiletry donations are very appreciated, the most needed non-perishable items are:

  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • peanut butter
  • juice
  • cereal
  • brown rice
  • whole wheat pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • rolled oats (instant oats)

Perishable Food Donations
To arrange the donation of perishable food items, please call (780) 492-8677 and ask to speak to the Executive Director. Feel free to plant an extra row in your garden this spring, as we do accept fresh produce.

Note: For safety reasons, we cannot redistribute homemade products or open food products.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

  • We also greatly appreciate donations of reusable bags.
