FOOD PICK UP – we do offer food pickups for schools, organizations and companies, during our normal work hours. Just call 459-7461 to make arrangements.

We accept donations during our normal work hours, or, if after hours, they may be placed under the overhand along the side of the building out of the weather.

Q: I want my child to volunteer

A: We have a warehouse setting with a lot of potential hazards for little ones. The food distribution requires volunteers to be age 13 and over. We encourage you to bring your younger children to help in the Gardens over the summer. This is a beautiful learning experience for them and we appreciate your help.

We encourage young children and youth groups to collect and make SOUP KITS, or FOOD PACKS. These are always in high demand at our Food Centre and they are a fun activity for groups.
