Student Food Resource Centre

Running short on food? Don't stress- stop by and stock up on food and resources. Located through the back of Mackinnon Hall, our free, confidential, food service is open Monday - Saturday afternoons. Come check us out!

The StFX Students' Food Resource Centre is a free, confidential, and accessible service aiming to provide all students with the appropriate resources to manage a sufficient, healthy diet. In addition to being a student food bank, we are also working to engage discussions surrounding food poverty on Canadian University campuses and initiate action to eradicate it. The food bank is located through the back door of MacKinnon Hall. All students are encouraged to stop by and check us out. If you are interested in volunteering or starting a campaign, contact the SFRC coordinator at
