Community Food Market

Community Food Market

Students living on and off campus are welcome to pick up free food at the Community Food Market on Wednesday afternoons. In the rare occurrence that we have a cancellation, information will be posted on the UVic Family Centre Facebook page, and the door of the Family Centre.

How to pick up Food at the UVic Family Centre

  • Stop by the Family Centre anytime on a Wednesday between 11:00 am – 12:00 pm to pick up a ticket for a food pick up time slot from one of our volunteers.
  • The ticket will give you a 10-minute time slot to return to the Family Centre to receive your food some time between 2:00 – 3:30 pm.
  • Our hard working volunteers and Food Market coordinator prepackage the food. Those who have a late time slot for pick up will receive the same food as those who have an early time slot.
  • Anyone who does not have a ticket will be required to wait and may or may not receive food depending on the supply.
  • Please treat our volunteers and coordinator with the respect and courtesy that they deserve. Bullying and harassment will not be tolerated

We sincerely thank the Living Edge, the Food Share Network and our volunteers and Family Centre staff for their support with this important program.
