What to expect when you come in
At Parkland Food Bank we do work on a drop in basis so you do not need to book an appointment. When you arrive please see our staff at the front reception desk to register.
Once you are registered, you may help yourself to bread and extra pantry items off the shelf while you wait for a volunteer to bring your order out to you.
Please don’t forget to bring your own bags! If there is anything in the hamper you would not use, we ask you to leave it behind so we can put it back on our shelves for someone else.
You may come once a month for a Full Hamper.
These hampers contain pantry items, milk, meat, and eggs as well as produce and pastry.
Any week you are not getting a full hamper, you are eligible to receive a weekly hamper of bread, produce and pastry .
This contains some produce, pastry and either some frozen products or pantry items depending on what we have available. You may also help yourself to bread and extra pantry items off the front shelf.
