FOOD RESCUE / FOOD BANK

img-food-rescue

Food Rescue is an amazing program that helps us feed a lot of people and prevents good food from ending up in the landfill. We pick up food that is damaged, near its best before date, discontinued and/or donated. These items come from businesses, grocery stores, restaurants, special events and individuals. We use them in our outreach programs and distribute them to other non-profit organizations within our community.

Items we are always in need of:

• Minute Rice
• Pasta
• Tomato Sauce
• Mixed Beans
• Soya Sauce
• Beef Broth
• Dill Pickles
• Jam

• Frozen Veggies
• Perogies
• Sausages
• Chicken Breast
• Napkins
• Ranch Dressing
• Granola Bars
• Juice Boxes

Yearly Hamper Program

We recently launched a Pilot Yearly Hamper program which approves clients at their first visit for a hamper every three months for one year.  Hampers vary depending on the size of the family and our hampers include bread, baking, produce, dairy and meat products in addition to non-perishable items.  We can usually accommodate special dietary requests and will include personal hygiene items when possible.

Clients come to us through referrals from other local non-profit organizations.  Our goal is to work together to support our mutual clients through whatever their personal situation might be.  Whether someone is dealing with addiction, a loss of job, or crisis we want our hamper program to provide stability while they improve their situation.
