We have Neighbourhood and Program Satellites. Neighbourhood Satellites offer alternative hours and proximity benefits for those needing food. Program Satellites make food hampers available to those who need it within an existing program, hosted at the program site. By creating satellite locations we have helped decrease the transportation barriers to food access and increased access to most needed services.
The Abbotsford Food Bank has partnered with local grocery stores to provide access to healthy produce to those living with food insecurity.
How it works
A mom who has benefited from the fresh produce said this:
“I have dietary restrictions and the produce my family and I need is too expensive to buy each week. I am so thankful to the farmers for giving to the food bank. Now my children are eating more nourishing food, and I am too.”
Produce is available seasonally. To receive produce you must live in Abbotsford and living in a low income household. Please apply in person with the following.
- Proof of household* income (2 pay stubs, proof of EI, pension or assistance & Child Tax Credit)
- Health Cards for all family members
- Picture ID
*household consists of all adults living in home.
Our main focus is to provide food security in low income households until the household is self sustaining. Ensuring children have access to the nutrition needed during development is our mission. Please consider adding some non-perishable items to your grocery shopping list for the Abbotsford Food Bank!
