About the Reach Out Centre

Located at 61 Nickel St., the Reach-Out Centre serves Port Colborne and Wainfleet by providing nutrition support like our food bank and meal programs.

Please see specific service to the right for hours

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  9am - 4pm emergency assistance and crisis support.

You can kindly donate non-perishable food items Monday - Friday from 9am - 4pm
