Client Support




There are many ways to show your support

The Hope Centre relies on the support of many individuals, organizations, businesses and community minded sources to deliver the programs and services we do to the community.

Monetary support goes the furthest.

We have cultivated invaluable relationships with suppliers, grocery stores, and farmers who work with us to help stretch your dollars as far as they will go and supply the best possible product for our clients. Every donation over $10 receives a charitable tax receipt.

Food donations are eagerly welcomed.

Staples like peanut butter and jam, canned meats and fish, instant meals like rice, macaroni & cheese and canned pastas, pasta sauce, and crackers are always needed. Please review our most needed items for a full list of what we need most, we update this seasonally and as items empty from our shelves.

Fresh and frozen products are in low supply.

The Hope Centre serves lunch five days a week to the community. Since the pandemic, the delivery of this program looks a lot different, we have carefully altered our Community Lunch Program, with our clients in mind, to provide this program in the best and safest way possible. This program is a staple at the centre and feeds upwards of 300 people each week. 

We do our best to provide a full nutritious meal. Donations for this program are always needed- we can store fresh and frozen food in the plenty. The ideal meal would include protein, vegetable, snack, dessert, bread, beverage (example. Chicken, carrots and peas, granola bar, cookies, buttered bread or bun and water or real fruit juice). 

Fresh and frozen products we accept include milk, bread, cheese, yogurt (individual servings) meat/protein, vegetables, fruit, desserts, water, juice, pop.

Hygiene products and diapers are needed.

Individuals and families using our food bank have access to hygiene items, feminine hygiene products, diapers and formula when available.

These items are always in high demand and typically very difficult to keep in stock on our shelves. These types of products have a higher price point and are not often kept top of mind when considering what items to donate to our food bank.
Please consider adding one or two items along with your food donation.
