Get Help – Register Online
The Richmond Food Bank is available to help Richmond residents who are experiencing financial difficulties. We work on the honour system, without an income or means test. The food we offer has been purchased and donated by the community to help people in need.
Where and when to get food:
Clients can collect a weekly grocery hamper once a week (per household) from:
Mondays through Thursdays or Saturdays, 10am – 3pm
New clients: Please Register Online before your first food bank visit using the form below. You can also register in-person on your first visit.
When you arrive at the food bank, please line up and we will serve clients in order. There will be NO random number draw before distribution time to determine the order in which clients who show up to the food bank before 10am are served.
