If you are a Domestic Student looking for additional support, please reach out to finaid@langara.ca to book an appointment to speak to a Financial Aid Advisor.

If you are an International Student looking for additional support, please reach out to your International Student Coordinator. If you are not sure who that may be, please email international@langara.ca, or visit Profiles – Langara Global.

The Community Cupboard program is in partnership with the Langara College Foundation, Financial Aid, and the Office for Student Engagement; with the support of the Langara Students’ Union and other funders. The Community Cupboard is 100% funded through donations and during these difficult times, if you have a bit to share to support the cupboard, please consider making a donation. For information or any other related questions, please email communitycupboard@langara.ca.

Students must complete the form below. Upon review of their application, students will be sent a confirmation email indicating the week they can pick up their food bag. The form will need to be completed for each request. Please submit only one request during a four-week period.

Students can expect to receive a confirmation email within 2-5 business days of submitting their application. Follow the instructions in the email provided. It will indicate what is required to claim your bag and the location and hours of operation for your pick-up.
