The grocery bus program picks students up at the taxi drop off in front of the HUB/LRT entrance (next to the bus loop) and drop you off at the Superstore on Gateway Boulevard, T&T Supermarket or at some Specialty Stores on 34th Avenue (Spice Centre, Halal Meat Shops, etc). We will then bring you and your groceries back to campus. This is a great way to stock up on groceries, meet new people and have a fun bus ride!
This program is part of the Campus Food Bank's suite of food support programming, designed to combat food insecurity in a variety of ways. Our organization has provided food hampers to the campus community for over 25 years, so extending our food education and access capabilities was a natural next step for us.
