Emergency Food Hampers

Our food hampers meet Canada’s Food Guide and contain one week of food for each person. Eligible people may receive up to seven emergency hampers in a 12-month period. The first three hampers may be received through self-referral, while the other four must be a referral from one of our agency partners.

In addition to receiving an emergency hamper, clients leave with information and resources to address the underlying reasons for food insecurity. We also carry specialty hampers for people with allergies, specific dietary restrictions, or for expecting mothers and fathers.

  • Celiac: available to clients with Celiac disease. Includes gluten-free specialty items like soup, cereal, pasta and bread
  • Prenatal nutrition: provided to low-income expectant mothers
  • Baby Food & Formula: provides baby food, formulas and diapers to mothers with new babies.
  • Renal Care: includes low sodium, low potassium and minimally processed foods for clients with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
