COVID-19 UPDATE: The Kamloops Food Bank remains open

With the growing number of Coronavirus cases and BC declaring a Public Health Emergency the focus on the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and clients remains paramount.

Our desire to create a safe environment while continuing to provide food to those in need prompted the following procedural changes:

Clients:

  • Stand 2 metres apart at all times
  • We are serving 1 client at time in the building
  • Sanitize hands upon entering
  • Have your ID ready to display
  • Please follow staff & volunteer direction
  • Clients are able to access Perishable hampers once per week and Non-Perishable hampers once per month
  • All Hampers are now pre-packed to
      • expedite the intake process
      • serve the largest number of clients
      • limit social contact
      • ensure food is shared equally

Our administrative staff is currently working from home and we are unable to answer any calls. Please email info@kamloopsfoodbank.org and your inquiry will be directed to the appropriate department.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the COVID-19 crisis.

We are in this together.

Regarding Donations:

At this time both monetary and shelf stable food donations are needed.

We are gratefully receiving food donations at 171 Wilson Street. Please come to the red receiving bay door Monday-Friday, 8am – 2pm
