Local Food Banks

If you are in need, there are local food banks in our region that may be able to help.

If you are able to give, consider contacting your local food bank to see how they would like to receive donations (cash donations or product donations). Different food banks may have different protocols in place at this time. Your local grocery stores may also be taking food bank donations.

Please call your local food bank for more details since their procedures may be different right now.

Safe Grocery Shopping

Plan ahead and make a shopping list, and prepare to consider alternatives if items on your list are not available.

  • Order groceries online or by phone and do curbside pickup or delivery, if possible
  • Shop alone and leave children at home, if possible
  • When possible, shop for groceries once a week
  • Respect store hours reserved for seniors and immunocompromised people
  • Sanitize hands before and after shopping
  • Practise safe physical distancing when shopping and standing in line
  • Only touch the food and products that you plan to buy
  • Be careful to not touch your face, mouth or eyes while shopping
  • Use touchless payment when possible
  • Wash your hands as soon as you arrive home and after you unload your groceries

Visit Dietitians of Canada for information about nutrition and stockpiling your pantry.
