We are more than a food bank. Our work addresses food security through the power of good food and community by providing:

🍎 Accessible, barrier-free options to food
🍎 Adequate, nutritious, and safe food
🍎 Acceptable, culturally appropriate food
🍎 AGENCY – We believe in CHOICE. Our Neighbours choose the food they want & need.


If you are food insecure and require support, you shouldn’t have someone else selecting your food for you.
