Clients and visitors do not need to be vaccinated to enter the food bank but they must wear a mask. To maintain physical distancing, clients will be limited to one member per household and only one may enter at a time. You will be asked to line up outside to wait your turn so please dress for the weather.

About Us

Established in 1990 as a temporary outreach program by some members of St. Paul's on-the-Hill Anglican Church, the food bank has outgrown several locations. 

Unfortunately, the need has not diminished over the years but the base has broadened. We now draw volunteers from across the local community.  Over thirty individuals regularly donate their time and efforts to keep the food bank operating.  We are also generously supported by many individuals, businesses and organizations.  Without the strong support of the community we could not continue to operate. 

The food bank is staffed entirely by volunteers.  

The food bank is open to clients on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 10 AM - 12 Noon.  excluding statutory holidays

Help Us

We depend on the generosity of community members who support our mission and vision.   Because food collection is uncoordinated, we often end up with too much of one item and not enough of another.  You can help us stock our shelves based on current need.  Please check our Current Needs page for the foods in short supply.
