We ask that anyone who is in need of our services provide us with the following items:
- Identification of each person in the home (Drivers License, Birth Certificate, AHC Card for all family members)
- Correct address/phone number/birthdates of each person in the home
- Proof of income (SFI, AISH, CPP, OAS, DIS, EI, Child Tax, Child Support, Alimony, Student Loan, Wages)
- Proof of expenses (Daycare, Alimony, Child Support, Rent/Sub, Mortgage/House Tax, Utilities)
Once you have met our guidelines, you will be given a 3 month or 6 month card to make your next visit quick and easy. When your card expires, you will need to re-qualify by bringing the paperwork listed above.
We are open Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 12pm and 1pm to 3:30 pm.
We provide food to our clients according to the number of full time residents in the household.
A client can pick up bread and produce three times per week and a hamper once per calendar month.
We also offer ‘No Fixed Address’ hampers for our transient clients.
