Are you a lover of the Finest Beer?Illustration of Wheat

Community

Beer has been at the centre of community since the outset of civilization. We have gathered and shared conversation, broken bread, played music and games, danced and occasionally shed a tear or two. This is at the heart of why we do all this. We make beer to add to life’s enjoyment. It’s simple, really.

We’ve been told that we give a lot back to our community. That’s not exactly how we see it. We are just doing what feels right to do. Lots of companies give back. And so they should. We do our part because we care and because we can. We’re all in this together.

The UVSS Food Bank & Free Store

The UVSS Food Bank & Free Store

The UVSS Food Bank & Free Store is a community space that supports students by supplementing basic food and other supplies, and works to eliminate the stigma surrounding accessing food banks. Run by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers, the UVSS Food Bank & Free Store offers all UVic students access to food essentials and free household items.

With the rising costs of tuition, housing, childcare, and food, we do what we can to provide essential support to undergrad and grad students. Extra resources are available for students supporting families.

Every week, hundreds of UVic students come to the Food Bank & Free Store. Students can drop by the UVSS Food Bank & Free Store during posted drop-in hours. All services are totally confidential and all current UVic students are welcome to use this service.
