We're Here For You

If you need food, we can help.

About our program

We are a fixed address hamper program that 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 encouraged to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer. 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).  

What do I need to bring?

For service at the Food Bank, you will need:

  • Valid, physical ID is required at every visit for every person you are claiming food for.
  • Upon opening a new client file, or at time of profile review (every 3 calendar months):
    • Mandatory current, proof of a North Bay or Redbridge address
      • When using ID as proof of address, it must be accompanied by a 2nd piece of current proof of address
    • We will ask if you would share your sources of income & expenses (mortgage/rent & utilities – hydro, heat & water) for data collecting purposes only.
