uFood is a customizable emergency food hamper program created and developed by the USSU with the goal of reducing food waste and meeting the unique dietary needs of students. Our pantry is stocked with pasta, soup, baby items, and condiments that students can choose from to create an emergency hamper that suits their needs.
This service is available exclusively to University of Saskatchewan students. Students can access uFood four times per term.
