Ever since the passing of a CSA amendment where students agreed to pay $1.50 out of their tuition to fight poverty, the CSA Food Bank has been established to help students through their studies. The CSA Food Bank, Stuff Swap and Bike Centre are all hosted out of the old biology house on Gordon Street. The food bank has recently developed terms in proud association with the City of Guelph Food Bank, to provide groceries and toiletries for students who need it. Recently, the addition of the Stuff Swap has transformed the CSA Food Bank into a resource centre in resemblance of a Salvation Army/Good Will, where clothing, appliances, electronics and other miscellaneous items are donated and readily available for those in need. A special dietary resource has also been established for students who are limited to certain foods by their beliefs and are eligible for a special fund. The CSA Food Bank is continuing to grow in terms of aiding students and is proud to thank all volunteers for their contributions! Volunteers aid in the day to day operations of the food bank, help to organize anti-poverty campaigns, design ads and posters for the food bank, and research anti-poverty resources. Any donations are always greatly appreciated! The CSA Food Bank prides itself on helping students save an extra buck on their grocery bills by dropping in and checking out what the food bank has to offer!
