We're Here For You

If you need food, we can help.

About our program

We can serve you once every 30 days. We give between 1-3 days worth of food. Items given are dependent on donations received and may vary each visit.

Client Service Protocols

Clients attending the North Bay Food Bank are asked to line up outside (please dress for the weather) as we will bring in 1 – 2 clients at a time for service. Clients (and visitors) to the Food Bank are required to wash their hands and use hand sanitize. Please ensure you have the proper documentation prior to your visit, and that you are attending on your eligible visit date or later (see below for policy). If you’re unable to make it in to see us, here is a list of other food banks and programs available in North Bay (based on information provided, please contact individual programs for hours and service requirements).
