O'Chiese Community Food Bank

Would like to welcome the O’Chiese Foodbank Staff as well!

The O’Chiese Community Food Bank is a program that provides all low-income singles and families with food each month. A hamper is built and given out once clients fill out an application with all supporting documents required. The program has two full time, dedicated employees. Hampers are given out once a month (normally mid month) and a hot lunch meal is provided the day of hamper distribution and office work is set up at the Social Development building.

The program started in October 2018. The program has also been receiving clothes from numerous donors; therefore, the program has started a small clothing bank for singles and families who are need of clothing. The shop is located at the Social Development building which is open 9:00 am – 4:30 pm Monday – Thursday and Friday 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The program has been getting numerous donations such as food, clothing and bottles. We are encouraging more donations

Foodbank staff and volunteers are very happy to see everyone come out! Thank you members and visitors for coming out. Everyone is welcome!
