Thank you for supporting our neighbours in need with your donation of healthy, nutritious food.  In a typical week, your donations help us serve more than 1300 people through our grocery distributions and an additional 800 people through our school meals and community partners programs.

  • Peanut Butter (all sizes)
  • Tinned meat and fish
  • Meal in a tin (baked beans, alpha-getti etc. )
  • Canned or powdered milk
  • Canned vegetables and fruit
  • Pasta sauce
  • Toiletries and Personal Hygiene items – toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste

Monetary donations allow us to purchase perishable food items, including fresh fruits and vegetables and milk.  We also have great purchasing power- for every $1 we spend, we give out $6 worth of food.  Donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.

You can donate online, over the phone (604-271-5609) with a credit card, or through the mail with a cheque (100-5800 Cedarbridge Way, Richmond BC, V6X 2A7).  Please contact us for more information.
