SAMRU Care Cupboards
SAMRU Care Cupboards build on our existing food security programs by extending anonymous, convenient access to food and personal hygiene supplies.
Satellite Cupboards: The cupboards feature both refrigerated and non-perishable food storage, microwaves, and essential hygiene products. Cupboards and fridges are re-stocked twice a week. Students accessing the care cupboards are encouraged to take what is necessary, but to visit SAMRU’s Peer Support Centre for their broader support needs.
Main Cupboard: Designed as a short-term solution, students can access the main Care Cupboard located in the Peer Support Centre a maximum of 3 times per month. Students are required to complete an online intake form, provide proof of enrollment, and select a pick up date and time. If you need longer-term assistance, we can help you access the Calgary Food Bank through our referral process.
