The Food Support is CSI’s way of helping make the student experience a little less stressful by making sure healthy food options are available on campus at a reasonable price.

Take a look at everything we have to offer. Event dates will be posted here where when available, but keep an eye on the events calendar for details on events that feature free or subsidized food.

Free Food at Events

Through our events that will be happening throughout the school year, we will be offering free food to students. Keep up to date through our bulletin boards around the school, on social media and on our events calendar:

CSI Food Banks

The CSI Food Bank is an emergency food relief program for students to access when in need. Student information is recorded through an anonymous database called Link2Feed. Students can access the Food Bank once per month with the option of meat, vegetarian or a family hamper. The CSI Food Bank is available at Doon, Cambridge and Waterloo campuses.
Hours vary between campus and season. CSI Food Banks are not open on major holidays, or during winter break. These hours are valid until exam week.

Please note that CSI Food Banks work at reduced hours during spring semester. Regular service will resume in September.

Farmers Markets

CSI hosts Farmers Markets monthly during the school year to help students keep healthy, locally grown produce and farmers markets goods in their cupboards. Grab a bag of items for a minimum donation to the CSI Food Bank. It’s inexpensive, it’s easy, and it’s here for you!

Farmers Market dates and locations will be posted here as they become available.
