Food Bank

The SUNSCAD Food bank is located in Fountain Campus just around the corner from SUNSCAD’s office!

Our Food bank is supplied by FEED Nova Scotia, and open to all students regardless of financial situation. Every Monday we receive boxes of perishables and non-perishables for you to take on a needs basis with a suggested maximum of 7 items, and no limit for canned vegetables.

Swing by and pick up ingredients for dinner on your way home! The Food Bank’s hours match NSCAD’s, we are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week!

Note: Due to COVID-19 we have changed our food bank services. See changes outlined below.

Food Bank Pickups

We will be moving to a new model for food bank access. There will now be scheduled times for access on Mondays and Thursdays from 1-3pm (if neither of these times work for you, please contact us directly at There is no item limit for pickup orders.

We ask that from now on, students fill out the Sign-in Sheet provided here to access food bank items. You must also sign out a Campus Access Authorization form at, and do so at least a day before your scheduled visit. 

At your scheduled time, you will meet a SUNSCAD food bank assistant at the main entrance of Fountain Campus, to be escorted up to the food bank. You will let them know what items you need, and they will assist you by handling the food and other items for decreased risk of contamination. In addition to regular food bank items, we will be providing tampons and pads. You will see these when you are choosing the rest of the items from the food bank. Please let us know to include them during your visit.

Food bank volunteers will direct you through our new process but we ask that you follow provincial social distancing guidelines to help them with this process.

Food Bank Orders

In addition to food bank pickups, we are now offering deliveries to students who are unable to come in person due to limited or no access to transport or being at high risk to COVID-19.

Orders will be accepted through a Google Form here. These orders will be open from Monday evenings to Thursday mornings. Deliveries will be prepared and completed on Friday afternoons. You will use this Google Sheet to view available food bank items to list in your order, which will be refreshed each Monday and Thursday afternoon.

This service is done on a first come first served basis at this time. We can not guarantee that what you request will be available when we pack your order. Due to higher volumes of orders, we must now keep the food item limit at a maximum of 25 per order.
