We are open!

Posted Mar 31st, 2020 in Announcements

We have had to amend to our services but we are open and serving our community during these uncertain times! 

Our food bank is open:

Tuesday to Friday morning 9:00am to 12:00pm

Our personal care bank is open:

Wednesday and Friday morning 9:00am to 12:00pm

We have been seeing a lot of new clients as people are laid off, had hours cut or are otherwise affected by the COVID 19 crisis. If you are in the position of needing food, maybe for the first time, you are welcome to come. Please bring proof of address, proof of income and ID for yourself and any other member of your household that you are getting food for. We serve Welland and Wainfleet. We realize that your income level may have changed and if you have any documentation (letter from your employer, etc), please bring that if you have it.

On Saturdays, we are offering take out lunch from 12:00pm-1:00pm. Please come at any time during that hour. You do not need to come right at 12:00pm. We will have lots of food prepared and encourage people to come at different times to prevent crowding and standing in close proximity. We have marked lines on the ramp to ensure everyone stands at least 6 feet apart while waiting to pick up the take out lunch. 

We are taking precautions to keep our staff, volunteers and clients safe, including distancing, wearing gloves, and limiting the number of staff and volunteers.

As the numbers of people we are serving have already increased and we expect will increase more, we are in need of certain items. The most needed items are:

  • Canned tuna and salmon
  • Canned fruit
  • Granola bars and kids snacks
  • Toilet paper

If you have a stockpile and can spare some or are in the health and financial position to donate, we appreciate the donations. We are open to receive donations at 22 Fifth Street, Welland Tuesday to Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm. We have a drop off bin for donations, to practice safe distancing for our donors and staff. We are also accepting financial donations. Click here to see ways to donate. Thank you in advance!

We are happy to be open and serving! If you are in need, please come. We are here for moments like this. To everyone who donates regularly, thank you. You have enabled us to be open and prepared for an emergency like this.
