Food and Monetary Donations

We are happy and grateful to accept donations of all sorts: food, monetary, kitchen equipment, skills and labour, utensils, zines, and more!

Food Donations

We sometimes take donations from the DSU Food Bank, Found Forgotten Food (, and we also work closely with the Dalhousie Student Union Market (, who sell produce in the Dal SUB on Tuesday, 10:00AM-3:00PM, during the Fall and Winter Semesters.

If you have a food donation in mind (e.g. extra produce from your DSU market food box) talk to ladle staff when we are in the kitchen.

Equipment Donations

We are always looking for handy kitchen supplies and cutlery. Talk to ladle staff when we are in the kitchen, or message us on social media to make arrangements.

Moving away? Know someone with too many unloved and underused kitchen jars, containers and utensils? Consider donating these gently used items to us!

What can you donate? We are looking for your gently used:

  • Spoons
  • Forks
  • Mason jars
  • Glass jars (with matching lids, please!)
  • Tupperware (with matching lids, please!)
  • Clean plastic yogurt/dip containers (with matching lids, please!)

Thank you!
