The Samaritan House provides Assiniboine students in need with access to their food hamper program. In return, the ACC Students’ Association supports the Samaritan House with various initiatives.

Each Halloween the ACC Students’ Association co-hosts the Halloween food drive to help bring in food for the Samaritan House food hamper program. Volunteers go door-to-door “trick-or-treating” for non-perishable food items. This past Halloween a total of 6034 lbs of food was donated to the Samaritan House through this initiative. However, volunteers and giving community members are needed to make this happen! If you would like to volunteer for the Halloween Food Drive, please contact the ACC Students’ Association by phone (204) 725-8710 or by email

Outside our office, you will also find a food donation bin. We welcome all students and staff to leave non-perishable food items for donation in this bin throughout the year. 

During the summer, we manage a community garden. All produce grown in this garden is donated to the Samaritan House. Follow our gardens success on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook throughout the summer.
