Help with food insecurity

Help with food insecurity

Donate to the Emergency Food Assistance Program to support our students during this time of need.

Food insecurity has severe consequences for one’s health. Post-secondary students are especially at risk, with over 50% of students at Canadian post-secondary institutions experiencing moderate to severe levels of food insecurity.

The Community Cupboard was an onsite food security program that Langara College offered to students experiencing financial hardship. In June 2023, the program began to transition away from dry goods and that Fall started offering emergency grocery gift cards to students in need. Access to these grocery cards is through Financial Aid and Langara Global.  

Grocery gift cards are most useful for students in need since they allow students to access food that accommodates dietary restrictions, is culturally preferred, and produces less waste (previously, the Community Cupboard offered a preset bag of dry goods monthly).  

This new program is meant to be an emergency assistance and is one way we help our students to succeed at Langara College. Please consider donating today.  All donations over $20 will be issued a charitable tax receipt. Charitable Business Number: 829255132 RR0001


All donations will be received and recognized in accordance with the Langara College Foundation Gift Acceptance Policies. Donate online or contact for more information!
