What To Donate

WHAT TO DONATE:

There are three ways you can donate to the food bank.

  1. You can send money via any one of the online options we have on our Donations page. You can mail cheques to our office or bring them down to us.
  2. You can come down and volunteer some time, making up hampers, portioning bulk foods, helping to give out hampers and/or stocking shelves. We also need a flood of volunteers for our fundraising efforts, our main food drive and assorted other events during the course of the year.
  3. Last but not least, you can drop off donations of non-perishable foods to our office any time of the year and extra produce, if you have some from your gardens, in the summer and fall.
