Fresh Produce and Meat or Dairy

Please consider donating fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, meat or dairy to Neighbour to Neighbour. If you’re at the market or have surplus produce in your vegetable garden or farm, Neighbour to Neighbour is happy to distribute these key nutritional items in our food bank.

Our food bank focuses on providing healthy choices to support better outcomes for our neighbours in need, which leads to better overall community health.

We have large refrigerated and frozen storage capacity to ensure optimal freshness.

Donate to Our Milk, Meat, or Produce Funds

Our food bank is committed to increasing the key nutritional types of food to improve their lives of those who utilize our emergency services.

Contribute funds to ensure a steady supply of milk, meat and produce is available to the individuals and families we serve monthly.

For every dollar donated to our food bank, Neighbour to Neighbour distributes $10 worth of food to your community!
