Donate to the BCITSA Food Support Hub! BCIT Students are your future employees, neighbours, and colleagues. They are the future of our province. Every donation you make will be used to provide students with the meals (and means) to get through their rigorous years of education.
Nourish the Next Generation
How Did The Food Support Hub Start?
Following rigorous planning, consultation, and development, the BCITSA established a partnership with Greater Vancouver Food Bank and opened the Food Pantry on January 27, 2022. It is a low-barrier service for students (it allows students to self-identify as needing food support).
How Many Students Have We Helped?
The need for food support is more pressing than ever; due to increasing costs, we’re seeing a dramatic increase in usage (90 additional students per week compared to last year). Between January 2023 and March 2023, we helped 1,742 students at the Food Pantry. Of those, 65% are international students.
How can you get involved?

With your support, we can combat food insecurity on campus, and send out healthy graduates into the world.
