Monthly Services

There are two options of our monthly service for our clients to choose from: the choice of our self-shop ‘Marketplace’, or a ‘Pre-packaged Hamper’. Equitable quantity for both options are according to household size.

Clients are eligible for a food hamper once every 30 days.

Marketplace allows our clients a choice of what products they take home according to their household size.  Please try to bring reusable shopping bags, else bags will be provided.  The Marketplace closes 15 minutes prior to our closing hours. Clients visiting after that time will only have Option 2: Pre-Packaged Hamper.

A pre-packaged hamper usually contains: canned vegetables, soups/stews, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, crackers, jam, and canned meat, frozen meat, milk, eggs, dairy, fresh seasonal vegetables and bread/baked goods.  Items will vary depending on donations and stock level.
