Please note: Most food banks require proof of address (a piece of mail with your name and address on it) and identification. At some food banks, proof of income is also required. Bring this with you! It is also a great idea to bring some reusable bags with you to carry your food. Additionally, most food banks only service clients in their direct neighbourhood. Please call in advance to make sure you qualify.
