UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 precautions, if you cannot come to the Richmond Food Bank yourself and need food:
- Please try to have a family member or friend pick up for you. Please have them bring your ID with them when they go to pick up your food, if possible. Call us with any questions or concerns: 604 271 5609
- If you cannot arrange a friend to pick up your food, please contact one of the following resources:
- Seniors 65+: Call BC 2-1-1 or apply online to access Safe Seniors Strong Communities – A program that matches seniors who need support with non-medical essentials, to volunteers in their community who are willing to help
- Those under 65 years of age: There is a facebook group of volunteers in the Richmond community who are willing to help those affected by COVID-19 who cannot leave home. Please contact them on facebook via direct message.
We provide a limited grocery delivery service for Richmond residents who are unable to collect food for themselves due to long-term disability, injury, or illness. Recipients receive a nutritionally balanced grocery parcel, bread, and fresh produce.
While anyone who lives in Richmond and is going through financial difficulty is eligible for our grocery distribution, we require a doctor’s note or letter from a community agency (including but not limited to Pathways Clubhouse, Richmond Centre for Disability, and the Richmond Society for Community Living), to access our grocery delivery program.
If you need a grocery parcel delivered to you, please Contact Us. We will need to see the doctor’s note or letter from a community agency – this can be scanned or photographed and emailed to us.
