Student emergency and food fund
The Student Emergency and Food Fund provides emergency support to students by distributing grocery store gift cards to students in need, safely, through an in person process. The program is run by the Dean of Students Office and is available to any registered Concordia student.
Students may apply a maximum of once per semester with 6 weeks between each successful application.
Students must register for an appointment with one of our program coordinators to receive their card by completing our booking form below.
Appointments are released every week so check back frequently if all slots are booked.
