Burnaby Food Hub Collaborative (BFHC)

The Burnaby Food Hub Collaborative (BFHC) is now closed. This site will be updated with new registration information once new additional funding to support students has been confirmed. The Burnaby Food Hub Collaborative (BFHC) is offering a bi-weekly grocery card to SFU students experiencing food insecurity. The first 80 students to register will receive a supplemental top-up worth $30 to help with food expenses.

Fine print:

  • A valid SFU email must be used to register.
  • You will receive an email with your electronic grocery card within three business days of your registration. 
  • If you have any questions about how to redeem your card, please see this document.
  • Limit one registration per student per registration period. There are four rounds of registration, so you may register four times.
  • Grocery cards are offered on a first come first served basis. We reserve the right to end registration early if all grocery cards are allocated.


Q: Where can I redeem the grocery card?

The President’s Choice grocery card can be redeemed at all participating Loblaw banner stores – Real Canadian Superstore, Your Independent Grocers, Super Valu, No Frills.
