The Pantry

Off-campus emergency food support for students who are not able to access our on-campus Pantry, Fresh Market, and other in-person FRCO initiatives (fully remote students and students not in Orillia while on extended placements) may access the virtual Pantry by using this form once per month during the Fall and Winter terms.

Good Food Box

The Orillia & Area Good Food Box is a non-profit charitable initiative bringing the community together to buy a variety of delicious and nutritious fresh fruit and vegetables at wholesale prices. It is a large buying club run entirely by volunteers – the more purchasers the better value for everyone. The Food Resource Collective Allows Students to Order a Good Food Box once a month for pick up on campus at the same time as our Fresh Market.

Fresh Market 

The Fresh Market takes place once a month during the academic term, providing free fruits and vegetables in the Simcoe Hall Learning Commons. Fresh Market Calendar
