The Squamish Food Bank is open on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Our hours are 11am to 1pm.
Recently we started a monthly Family Food bank day to support families with children in our community. We distribute dairy, eggs, fresh produce, bread and baby items on this day. As well as a snack bag for kids to support them with school lunches and snack time.
We are located in the BC Rail yards, this new space enables people to make more of their own choices with food as well as wait inside our waiting room, with a coffee, out of the elements.
Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the number or food bank recipients. Over 25% of those are children. Our Squamish Seniors are also a part of a growing trend of new customers. As well as single and two parent families who struggle with the increase in food and rental costs.
The cost of living here is a big part of what brings people through our doors. Our demographic is wide, it also includes low income working families and those on disability.
Your donations can help provide food for those in our community who need support. A child who goes to school on a full belly will have a brighter future than if they go empty.
Please support the Squamish Food Bank.
