COVID-19 Announcement

Hello everyone! The Nicola Valley Food Bank will be open regular hours until we are advised otherwise this week.

We ask our clients to take into consideration that we are in a small confined space so we will be monitoring the amount of people coming into the building at a time.
Please dress warmly if we need to ask you to wait your turn. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please seek medical attention. Social Distance yourself to avoid passing the virus on, if you should have it. It is important to always practice good hygiene habits.
We will not be having our regular “social” coffee on Thursday. We will be asking you to leave as soon as you get your weekly food or hamper.
Let’s all do our part to get this virus contained.
We will keep you updated if closure needs to made. We are hoping that if everyone follows our direction, we will remain open to provide this essential service in our community.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

Welcome to Nicola Valley Food Bank

The Nicola Valley & District Food Bank society was formed in 1999 to help those in the Nicola Valley who live within the limitations of low income to gain access to food for their families.

In 2015 we reached an all-time assistance level of helping over 1140 individuals in our community. Some may only access our services once in a lifetime or for a short period while we find that others need our assistance on a more frequent and longer basis. This results in a community support level approaching 11,000 clients assisted in a one year period.

If you require our services to access food please come into the food bank during business hours (Tuesday - Thursday 10 am through 1 pm) with your proof of income, documentation showing an address in our area, and ID for each member of your family. (We commonly use a medical card).

If you are looking to make a donation we encourage you to come during business hours for financial donations while non-perishable donations can be left in the donation bins located at the front of both our local Save-On-Foods and Extra Foods. You can also support us by making a contribution via PayPal.  Thank you!
