We are committed to helping those in our geographic region -- Elliot Lake and Serpent River -- who are struggling with hunger or food security issues.
Our Clients are treated with dignity and respect. We respect the confidentiality of our Clients.
How it works
Register with the Food Bank at 29 Columbia Walk in Elliot Lake. Our Intake Coordinator is here to help! **Registration requires a piece of Government issued photo identification for each person in your household and a proof of current address, such as a utility bill or statement**
The Intake Coordinator has the discretion to provide hampers on an emergency basis to unregistered individuals, such as transients.
How much food do I get?
You are eligible to access the Food Bank once per month. Our Food Bank provides a pre-packaged hamper containing breakfast, lunch, and supper products, as well as meat, dairy, and bread products.
COVID-19 UPDATE We are happy to announce that we are once again accepting food donations! Please ensure that the best before date is valid for any food donated -- we cannot accept food that is past the best before date.
Masks are now optional inside the foodbank, however you will be asked to wear a mask if you are presenting covid-19 symptoms as a precaution to keep our volunteers and other foodbank users safe. Please be respectful of each individual's choice to wear or not wear a mask.
