Emergency Essentials Assistance Program
The USC provides hampers of food and essentials to students in need, offering both a pick-up and delivery option.
To request a hamper for the first time, students must complete both the Link2Feed Intake Form and the Hamper Request Form which can be found on the USC’s website or Linktree. Subsequent hamper requests can be made by resubmitting just the Hamper Request Form.
Students are limited to two hampers of food and essentials per month. If you require additional food or financial assistance due to dire need, please complete the Enhanced Assistance Request Form located on their website and Linktree, email the USC, or visit their office in 314 University Centre.
Food Related Programming
The USC holds food drives and other food-related initiatives and events to support its Emergency Essentials Assistance Program, offers food-related educational programming such as food preparation events, and increases awareness of the presence of food insecurity and poverty in our community.
