On Sept 30th for The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation our Farquhar St location will be serving from 1-2:30pm. Walk up only this day. No drive-through. St Andrew's Church (by appointment) will be open. Salvation Army Church will be closed that day. The warehouse will be open to agencies and farmers. The office will be closed. 

Covid-19 Update: In accordance with the latest health regulations masks are now optional in the warehouse.

Food pickup locations (free food market depots)  are located in borrowed spaces, and each building may have their own requirements. We ask that you come prepared to wear a mask and respect their individual policies.
Anyone feeling ill or at risk is encouraged to give the IDs for their household to someone else who can collect food for them. That person must be prepared to show their ID as well*

All clients are asked to bring recycled or reusable bags to our depots to help pack food items.
