Items Needed

Warehouse management is one of the most challenging tasks in our operation. Between handling an influx of items after a food-drive, keeping a minimum stock and responding to emergency situations, we sometimes fall short on some high-in-demand items. Every Wednesday, we post the top most-needed items on our Facebook page #whatsneededwednesday.

Urgently Needed Items

  • Long grain rice (brown or white)

  • Canned Fish

  • Jam / Honey

  • Fruit Snacks for Children

  • Juice (1 litre or snack size tetrapaks)

Donations

The items we accept as donations vary from cash, over pet food, personal hygiene items to all kinds of food.

There are, however, a couple items that we cannot accept, please do NOT bring us:

  • Homemade Food(Jams, Preserves, Canned Meats)
  • Meat not commercially butchered(we require proof from butcher/processing plant)
  • Wild Game
  • Ungraded Eggs

  • Opened or Partially Used Items
  • Frozen Foods
  • Over the Counter Medications

Fresh, perishable foods can only be accepted directly at the Food Bank WITH a copy of the receipt showing the date & time they were purchased.
