The Emergency Grocery Card Program has been established by the GSS to provide limited assistance to graduate students in urgent financial need. It is not meant to replace the services offered by the university (including SFU’s bursary program for graduate students), food banks, or long-term remedies for graduate students’ financial needs.
The GSS values its non-judgmental position as the provider of this program; it is understood that graduate students’ needs for accessing this program are numerous and that the items that may be purchased with the grocery card are at the discretion of the student recipient.
Please note that it may take up to one week for a grocery card to be made available.
Please be aware that there is limited funding for this program and that the GSS may not always have grocery cards available. The GSS assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen grocery cards.
Important to note: The GSS reserves the right to reject any application that does not meet the program terms. The GSS also reserves the right to modify this program without notice.
