Many families in our community are struggling. Approximately 25% of our clients are children, some of whom are going to school hungry. Without lunch, these students’ ability to learn is severely impacted. Our school snack program is one way we help ensure that the children in our community have healthy, nutritious snacks to curb their hunger.
Donations of Food
Donations can be dropped off at the Boundary Community Food Bank on Tuesdays between 10 am and 3 pm, or by appointment by calling 250-442-2800. You can also drop items off in Grand Forks at the bins at Save-On-Foods or Extra Foods. Most Needed Items
One of the most efficient ways to donate is through financial contributions. Not only does it allow us to use our buying power to purchase more food per dollar, but also to buy the food that is currently needed, such as the purchase of perishables like milk and eggs.
Donations of money can be made online by using Donate Now . A tax receipt will be automatically generated. We also accept e-transfers. Please use BoundaryFoodBankOffice@gmail.com as the email address for e-transfers and please include your mailing address so we can issue you a tax receipt. We also accept donations by cash or cheque, by mail or in person at the Food Bank. Tax receipts can be issued for donations, just be sure to let us know your mailing address.
While 80% of our donations come in November and December, hunger is a year-round issue. If you are able to, please consider selecting the monthly contribution option.
