Food First


The BUSU Food First program is a service aimed to address the growing issues of food and health insecurity among Canadian post-secondary students. The program provides support to students in need with a local grocery store gift card.

This service is designed to assist with food and health accessibility and is not intended to be a primary source of food for any one undergraduate or graduate student.

Food first requests are reviewed every Wednesday from 10am-2pm and Friday from 10am-1pm and that students will receive a confirmation email letting them know when their gift card will be available to pick up at the BUSU reception desk.

About the Program

The BUSU Food First program wishes to represent every student faced with food or health insecurities. The students of the Brock community lead incredibly complex, stimulating and challenging lives. We believe that access to basic and fundamental nutrition should never impede a student’s ability to succeed. The BUSU Food First program offers this resource, and can direct students to additional community supports for counseling and assistance to ensure every student has the opportunity for success.
