Food Hampers for Seniors

Community Food Hub & Drop-In

Healthy produce, bread and non-perishable food for children, families, seniors and individuals.

Along with a monthly food hamper, you can enjoy a healthy meal and social interaction at each drop-in. We invite you to shop in our grocery store style Food Bank to select food items of your choosing. Eligible participants need to be residents of Hope to qualify. On your first visit, please bring ID for yourself and each member of your family/household.

For more information about the Community Food Hub, please contact Dianne MacDonnell at dianne@hopecommunityservices.com or Kim Paolini at kim@hopecommunityservices.com or call our main office at 604-869-2466.

While we are located inside the Northwest Harvest Church at 888 3rd Avenue, we have no affiliation with the Church other than as friends and tenants.

Individuals & Couples

Individuals and couples are eligible to receive a food hamper once per month on either the first three Wednesdays and Thursdays of each month between 12:00 and 2:00pm. 

We invite you to shop in our welcoming and friendly grocery store style environment to select food items of your choosing.  We have a selection of healthy, organic produce from the Food Bank Production garden (during the growing season) and produce from the Food Recovery project in partnership with Save-On Foods. 

If you’re pressed for time, we’ll still have pre-packaged hampers on hand to get you out the door quickly.  

A nutritious lunch is provided at each drop-in!

FREE Curbside Market

Each week the Community Food Hub offers a FREE Curbside Market located at the Northwest Harvest Church, 888 3rd Avenue.

Recovered produce and non-perishable food items, along with an assortment of rescued bakery products are available for your choosing.

Mondays – Thursdays 1:30 – 3:30

Families with Children

While families can access the Food Bank any time we are open, we encourage you to join us on the 4th Monday of each month from 2:30 to 3:30 for a special Family Day. 

We have activities for the kids, a smoothie station, cooking demos and family-friendly meals. 

We encourage the kids to join in on the food prep in a safe and fun manner!

Parents can shop in the friendly grocery store-style food bank to choose items from a selection of healthy, organic produce from the Food Bank Production garden (during the growing season) and produce from the Food Recovery project in partnership with Save-On Foods.

Staff and various community professionals will also be on hand to provide resources, support and to answer any questions you may have.

Our Community Food Bank & Drop-In programs rely almost entirely on the generous donations of community members, businesses and organizations and a small grant from BC Gaming.  We could not serve the community the way we do without the support of individuals, businesses & organizations like yourselves.  If you would like to help make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children, families, seniors and individuals in our community, visit our donation page today!
