To register as a new client with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank for weekly food access, please call or email us to set up an appointment: 604-876-3601 option 1 / [email protected]. We can schedule an onsite registration for you at the closest GVFB food distribution location to you, or we can set up an online registration appointment via Microsoft Teams. 

To register you will need to bring:

  • Government-issued picture identification
  • Recent (3 months) proof of address (such as a telephone or utility bill) in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster or the North Shore
  • Care cards or any government-issued ID for all of the dependants living with you (both adults and children)

If you are an existing client, please bring your GVFB Client Card with you when you visit one of our locations.

If you come to one of our food distribution locations as a new client with ID for yourself only, you will receive food at your first visit. Once any dependent family members are registered, you may pick up food for them.

We are here to help, with healthy food and a welcoming team.
