We Like Fresh Produce Donations! | Richmond Food Bank Society
By Keith Yee in Donation on May 29, 2015
Fresh fruits and vegetables are essential – many of the people we serve are dealing with health concerns and/or are raising children, and fresh produce helps them maintain their health.
We purchase fresh foods like protein-rich items, dairy and substitutes, and much-needed foods that are not donated in sufficient quantities. Monetary donations are crucial to helping the 1300 people who use our grocery distribution services in a typical week, as we are a registered charity that is not funded by the government. To donate, please visit our Canada Helps page and Donate Now. We give out about $6 worth of food for every dollar donated (based on 2019 data).
Donations of fresh produce can be dropped off at the Richmond Food Bank (100-5800 Cedarbridge Way) on:
- Mondays to Fridays between 9 am and 3 pm;
- Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm
If you require pickup, one of our volunteer drivers will be happy to collect your donation of 5 or more large boxes. Please Contact Us to schedule a pickup.
To get help harvesting fruit from your tree(s), please contact the Richmond Food Security Society and find out about their Fruit Recovery Program.
Thank you for helping our neighbours in need!
