In response to the COVID-19 health crisis we are offering additional hours of fresh food distribution at our Winston St. location during Warehouse Week, the week we are traditionally closed each month. We have enough fresh and perishable items to distribute and we want them to go to those in need.
Come and see us during Fresh Week!
May 26– 29, 10am – 2pm at Winston St.
All other locations will remain closed during this week as previously scheduled.
The Greater Vancouver Food Bank does not solicit donations door-to-door. If you are approached by someone claiming to represent the “Food Bank” do not give them a donation of any kind.
Please note as many details about the individual as you are able and contact the non-emergency number for your local police enforcement.
As part of our many operational adaptations to address the COVID-19 health crisis, we have had to deal with the closure of our food distribution locations (neighbourhood houses, churches, community centres). With the critical need for social distancing, we have had to make alternate plans. Click “here” for the most up to date food distribution location schedule.
We are taking many internal precautions at the GVFB including increased hand sanitizing, frequent cleaning of high-touch areas and common areas, and social distancing within the warehouse and office.
We are working continuously and responsibly to ensure we continue to get healthy food to those in need, in a way that is operationally sustainable at this time. Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time.
