Ensuring No One Goes Hungry in Our Community

Our very busy Food Bank is an essential service in our community, and we are expecting to see a marked increase in registrations in the coming months. During this time, we are still running three of our four Food Banks (Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, and Katzie First Nation), and have waived the income requirements for new registrants. For safety, our healthy volunteers are doing home deliveries for seniors in need, as the in-person Senior's Food Bank has been closed for now. We also provide the food to School District 42's School Meal & Snack Program. The District has indicated that this program will continue even if the schools are not "open", so the 2274 students each week that use the program will still have access to healthy food. Finally, we are sharing any extras that we may have with the 20+ charities and not-for-profits in our community that are also working to eliminate food insecurity.
