I need emergency food support

If you need emergency food support, we’re here to help. Our Food Bank is operating with modified services due to the pandemic. Please phone us for assistance at 905-835-1914.

Once you’ve become a member registered with of our food bank, you can visit once per month to shop for basics. You can pick up bread, fruits and vegetables every week when available.

During the school year, you can pick up a lunch kit every week for each school-age child, containing enough bread, sandwich items and other essentials to provide enough lunches for the week.

Please bring your ID and grocery bags with you. If you’re a first-time visitor, please bring ID for yourself and any dependants, a stub of proof of income, proof of rent and other bills.

You can also come to our 61 Nickel St. or 92 Charlotte St. location any time Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for emergency assistance and crisis support.

The Reach-Out Centre offers three meals, once a week, free of charge. Recipients will get one hot meal and two frozen meals for the week, on Mondays.

I am interested in growing my own food

Community Garden
Our Community Garden is a wonderful teaching garden located on Davis Street in Port Colborne and built on land donate by the Vale. We offer hands on opportunities for families and individuals to grow their own food. We also have multiple plots at the Lockview Park in partnersip with RAW Materials Inc. and the City of Port Colborne.

Children as young as preschoolers are learning about their environment in our garden in conjunction with our Ontario Early Years Programs.

Thank you to the many volunteers who make both of these gardens possible!
Thank You to our program funders and supporters
