SAMRU Care Packages

Ready-to-take single bag hampers of non-perishable food and hygiene supplies are replacing our Free Breakfast Program and the Food and Hygiene Cupboard program of the Peer Support Centre. Students may arrange to pick up a relief bag during reception hours, Monday to Friday (except Statutory holidays) from 9:00 am -4:00 pm. 

  • To get your SAMRU Care Package, email: reception@samru.ca or call 403-440-6077. Please bring your student ID with you.

Mobile Grocery Store

The Mobile Grocery Store has a delivery request form where students or anyone you know who is in need can go:  https://freshroutes.ca/delivery-request/. The market will not appear on campus again this semester.

Good Food Box

Good Food Box is still operating, albeit a bit differently. We are now taking orders over the phone at SAMRU reception (403-440-6077) and taking payment by credit card (we’ll charge your card and then send you a receipt). Once the orders arrive, you will need to come to reception to pick up your box.

Reception has resumed its regular Fall hours of Monday to Friday (except Statutory holidays) from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. As such, Good Food Box orders must be in by the Thursday preceding the usual Monday deadline. (Eg: if the order deadline is April 27th, orders must be in by April 23rd the week prior.)

Calgary Food Bank

Students can now apply to receive a Calgary Food Bank hamper online here.
