How It Works

  • 10:30 AM – Coffee served in the Food Bank kitchen. Take a number to hold your place in line for food distribution.
  • Families, you are invited to request a family number, from the Office Manager.  This gives you priority in line. Family numbers are given out between 10:30 – 11:00 AM. If you arrive later than this, there might not be any family numbers left.
  • 11:00 AM – Doors open. Lunch is served and numbers begin being called for food distribution.
  • Please bring proof of address when registering. You must renew your registration each new year.
  • Please bring your own bags or box.
