Important Announcement: The safety of our clients and volunteers is our top priority. Until further notice the ONLY depots open will be Farqhuar Street depot from Monday, Wednesday & Thursday, Alliance Church depot on Tuesdays, Neighbourhood Church depot Thursdays, Salvation Army Church depot on Fridays and Generations Church depot on Saturdays. Please see the updated depot schedule for times. Food will be given in pre bagged hampers for the time being to respect social distancing recommendations. Loaves and Fishes Food Bank has always encouraged those who are unable to come to our depots to give their ID to another person to collect for them. Anyone who is sick or at risk MUST give their ID to someone else to collect food for them. (photo copy of ID is OK, pictures on phones are not accepted) Those who come to collect for someone else must show their own ID as well
Other non-profits and farmers are still welcome in our warehouse during regular hours. Our supplies may be limited for a while so we ask that everyone come together as a community. Daily updates on our social media accounts and this website will be ongoing.
Please note we are now operating under Phase 3 Emergency Scheduling protocols. Our depot schedules are changed until further notice. Anyone who is showing signs of illness or is at risk must give their ID to another person to collect their hamper for them.
