Food Collective Centre

The Food Collective Centre is a space that aims to empower and support Mac Bread Bin users through the choice of selection. By using a self service format, Mac Bread Bin Partners* have the opportunity to pick the non-perishable food, and hygiene products that they need - at no cost.

Operating Hours:

Monday through Thursday from 11:30 am - 3:30 pm

We hope that this space will help break the stigma surrounding food banks and encourage not just students, but the community to learn, experience, and empower one another. 


How to Participate: 

- Service Partners*: please fill out the Welcome Form for your first time using the FCC or Locker of Love.

- Service Volunteers: please email goodfood@msu.mcmaster.ca for more information.

- Donations: donations of any food or hygieune products will be accepted by volunteer or they can be left infront of the FCC door.
