Food Bank

About us: We are a volunteer organization run by Redwood Park Church. We are a member of the Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA). We operate out of the basement of New Hope Church at 532 Edward St N.

When we are open: We are presently open to serve clients every second Thursday. We are open from 12:30 to 2:30, although we sometimes open earlier if our deliveries are on time. View Current Schedule.

Who we serve: We serve clients and their families throughout the city and area who are need of emergency food.

What you need to bring: Bring current picture ID for yourself, and current ID for everyone in your family that lives with you. Also bring something that has your current address on it. Clients are asked to pre-register by calling 211.

Pandemic protocols: Limited numbers of people will be allowed indoors, so there may be a short line up. But our system works fairly quickly. Please, WEAR A MASK, and keep PHYSICALLY DISTANCED. We have hand sanitizer available.

What to expect: We aim to provide 5-7 days of food. We try to have some fresh produce, and do have some specialty items available on request, like diapers. Presently we are supplying boxes and bags.
