Need Help?

If you need food, we can help! We can serve you once every 30 days. We give 1-3 days worth of food. Given items are dependent on donations received so may vary each visit.

For service you will need:

  1. Valid photo I.D. for each household member.
  2. Income statement(s) (e.g. ODSP slip, pay stub).
  3. Proof of rent and address (e.g. rent receipt). We only provide service to North Bay and Redbridge.

You’ll also want to bring a backpack or reusable bags to pack your food in.
If you’re unable to make it in to see us, here is the schedule for the other Food Banks and Programs available in North Bay.

We’re located at:
1016 Fisher Street, North Bay, Ontario
