Working to improve food security, food equity, and food literacy in the Saint Mary's University Community! 

Hunger can be a big problem in the university community. If you need long term assistance or just a little food to help you until your funding arrives, we are here to help. The Community Food Room is the on-campus food bank that welcomes all members of the Saint Mary’s University Community. Our goal is to be able to offer access to safe, nutritious, and personally acceptable foods in a welcoming environment. We are committed to increasing accessibility for our clients and would love to meet with individuals who need additional accommodations to find what works best for them.
