At SNAP, we consider ourselves fortunate to offer GBC students struggling with food insecurity the opportunity to access our Food Hamper Program. We understand that some students go without three balanced meals a day and face challenges in nourishing themselves and their households. Through our program, we aim to extend a helping hand in both academics and nutrition.
To start the registration process, please complete the assessment form HERE.
Once completed the SNAP team will review each assessment before reaching out to students. Following the completion of the assessment, the SNAP team will diligently review each submission to determine if a meeting is necessary to gather further details before providing student with the SNAP online registration link.
By connecting with SNAP, you will gain a better understanding of our mission and the comprehensive services we provide. Together, let’s ensure that every GBC student has the support they need to thrive academically and lead a healthy life.
We believe that by adhering to these policies, we can ensure a positive and supportive atmosphere for all SNAP participants and uphold the values of George Brown College. To ensure that Students and Staff are being treated equal and respected, SNAP has set policies that we expect George Brown Students to follow to ensure respect, integrity, and safety when student are being served and when staff is serving.
To address students who repeatedly break one or more rules. SNAP has implemented a Warning System to track and manage instances where students violate the rules set by SNAP. It could involve a series of escalating warnings or consequences for each subsequent rule violation.
1. First Strike: Written warning and a reminder of the SNAP policies in place.
2. Second Strike: Written warning and a follow-up meeting/email with Community Service Coordinator.
3. Third Strike: Meeting with Community Service Coordinator and Equity and Advocacy Manager about alternative food sources that may be better suited for your needs. There will be a later assessment of your ability to follow the SNAP rules for the following semester and you will be asked not to use the service for the current semester.
