About Our Charity
We are the registered food bank for Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows and are a member of Food Banks Canada and Food Banks BC.
WE DO NOT solicit and operate soley on the generous donations from our communities. We could not exist without the support of our volunteers who give more than 1,300 hours per month.
Food hampers are provided to registered clients on a monthly basis. These hampers have 4-5 days of food as well as a produce and protein supplement each month. Our clients are also enabled to visit the food bank once a week to collect fresh fruit, vegetables and bread. We also provide "extras" which include soaps, cereal, juice, condiments, paper products etc. We have programs to support babies and a milk & egg program that supports families with children under twelve and seniors.
Friends in Need Food Bank provides about 800 food hampers each month which equals about 15,000 lbs of food. We are open Tuesday thru Friday for client services from 8:30am to 12:00 pm most weeks throughout the year in Maple Ridge. In Pitt Meadows we are open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.
