Concordia’s Food Bank

Posted on: Dec 17, 2018

The Concordia food bank is intended for students who find themselves short on resources to purchase food. It is to provide temporary assistance to students struggling to feed themselves. It runs on an anonymous basis and students can make use of it on an as needed basis.

The items in the food bank are made possible through donations and the efforts of volunteers who work to keep the food bank stocked and organized.

Support for the food bank is always appreciated.  We accept monetary donations as well as donations of non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products.  We also have room for small amounts of household items.

If  you would prefer to donate items rather than money, below is a list of items that can be donated:

  • Canned meats (tuna, ham, chicken, etc.)
  • Canned pastas and stews
  • Canned and dry soups (Mr. Noodles, etc.)
  • Macaroni and cheese
