We Like Fresh Produce Donations!

By Keith Yee in Donation on May 29, 2015

If you’re finding your vegetable garden produces too much food for you and your family, please consider donating your excess fresh fruits and vegetables to the Richmond Food Bank.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are essential to our grocery distribution- many of the people we serve are dealing with health concerns and/or are raising children, and fresh produce helps them maintain their health.PO9_7155

We typically purchase at least 2500 lbs of fresh produce each week.  Your donations is crucial to helping the 1300 people who use our services in a typical week, as we do not receive financial support from any level of government.

Donations of fresh produce can be dropped off at the Richmond Food Bank (100-5800 Cedarbridge Way) on:

  • Mondays to Wednesdays and Fridays between 9 am and 3 pm;
  • Thursdays between 9 am and 7 pm;
  • Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm

If it is more than 4 large boxes of fresh produce, we are happy to send our van to collect your donation.  Please Contact Us to schedule a pickup.

If you don’t have excess fresh produce, but would like to donate, please visit our Canada Helps page and Donate Now.

Thank you for helping our neighbours in need!
