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. Students may drop in to pick up these relief bags from 11-4 Monday to Friday. We’ll be monitoring demand to ensure that we have enough supplies on-hand, but you can also call ahead and we’ll make sure to have one available with your name on it.

  • To get your SAMRU Care Package, email: psc@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 adjusted its hours to Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00 pm 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.
