Any Ryerson Community Member (student, staff, or faculty) is eligible to attend our events, cooking workshops and utilize our Good Food Box service without being a food bank member. If you are interested in utilizing our food bank service, you will need to go through a short process to become a registered member of the Good Food Centre.
Ryerson Community members are eligible for this service.
The food bank is located at the basement of the Student Campus Centre, 55 Gould St.
Eligible Ryerson members in need are able to receive food assistance through our on-campus food bank. Through the Daily Bread Food bank, Ryerson Urban Farm, Ryerson Community Garden, and locally sourced food, the Good Food Centre offers perishable and non-perishable food items. Various dietary food options are also available. Interested community members must register through the google form for a food bank membership to access services.
During the spring, summer, and early fall months, our dedicated team of staff and volunteers grow a variety of organic food on-site to provide our food bank program with fresh, local, and sustainable produce. We prioritize growing vegetables that are nutrient dense, easy to grow, and costly to purchase at retail prices. Generally, we grow chard, kale, tomatoes, summer squash, lettuces, beets, pole beans, cucumbers, and broccoli.
The Good Food Centre is host to numerous resources concerning eating on a budget. These include: cost-saving strategies, recipes, and Toronto wide community food resources. Visit our Recipe Database or Resources Page for more information.
