The Food Bank hours of operation are: Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 12 noon.
The Food Bank is located at 1-1491 McPhee Avenue in Courtenay.
You can pick up your food hamper once per month, which usually includes: Milk, meat or eggs, canned goods and veggies. Other options may be available depending on what was donated that day.
You can also go to the Food Bank and pick up fresh vegetables and bread the other three weeks that you are unable to get a full hamper.
The Food Bank has set up a number system where you grab a ticket by the front door and watch for your number to be posted. With this new system you can back your car up and watch for your number to be posted. This way if the weather is cold or wet and windy you can stay comfortable.
They have a new shopping model where you have a choice in what food you select, rather than the bagged hamper. You can customize your hamper to meet the particular needs for your family.
Please bring your photo ID when ever you are picking up from the food bank.
