As of November 2020: Registered Food Bank clients who want to skip the lineup can pick up an Express hamper during any grocery distribution at 5800 Cedarbridge Way: 10am – 3pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays. There is no need to sign up ahead of time on those days. Just visit the Express line near the front door, or speak to a Food Bank staff member.

The Express hamper includes a standardized, pre-packed box of non-perishable foods, fresh produce, milk, baked goods, and protein foods such as frozen meat or alternatives.

Express is fast (and convenient!) because there are no customizations or substitutions. You will not be able to select the type of bread, protein items, or produce that you receive. The Express hamper counts as your once weekly visit to the Food Bank.

Please call us to sign up or if you have any questions – 604 271 5609.

We also offer an Express-only service on Fridays. (There is no regular grocery distribution on Friday – only Express hamper pickup for those who signed up in advance.) You can sign up for an Express hamper online (with the form below) or by phone ahead of time, before Wednesday at 3pm, and pick it up on Friday at the Richmond Food Bank main location at #100 – 5800 Cedarbridge Way between 11am and 2pm.

Use this form to sign up for the Friday Express hamper pickup. You must sign up no later than 3pm on Wednesday.
