FOOD BANK OPERATIONS DURING THE COVID19 ISOLATION PERIOD

 

WEGCSS would like to offer the best Food Bank service our resources allow, while minimizing the risk of Covid 19 infection to all.  We have altered our Food Bank operations to protect the community, the volunteers and the staff.  We offer pre-packed boxes one at a time from the outside of the building.  We have added a distribution station from the Youth Centre door to lessen your wait time.  We look forward to being able to share meals and social time again.  Meanwhile, thanks for your patience. 

 

Location: 1001 Harold Street beside the WE Graham Community School 

We serve the Slocan Valley from New Denver to Playmor Junction. 

Open 11am-3pm on the first and third Thursday of each month, first come first serve. 

Dress warmly as you will be waiting for your food box outside. 

Please practice physical distancing and stay 20’ back from the Food Bank door until your turn.
