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 at the SAMRU Service Hub (Z222) from Monday to Friday (except Statutory holidays) between 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. 

SAMRU Care packages contain enough supplies for one to two days and provide students with food security that can be accessed year-round. Packages contain both food and hygiene products to help students during this difficult time. Packages include items such as spaghetti, beans, rice, canned meals/fruit, bread, cereal, condiments (peanut butter, jam, and Nutella), razors, shaving cream, deodorant, feminine products, toothpaste and toothbrushes. 

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