You can get food at the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard if you live in North Gloucester, Pineview and West Orleans.
You may receive approximately a 4 day supply of emergency food in a Crisis Situation, normally once a month. You must come to the food cupboard at one of the times we are open.
We cannot deliver food to clients!
Please Bring: Identification for everyone who needs food and proof of your address. Some acceptable types of identification are: recent driver’s license, bills, direct deposit slips and drug or dental cards.
When you come to volunteer at the Food Cupboard, you can see boxes of food stored in every spare nook and cranny in the building! We have received some awesome donations from schools, churches and individuals. Every Fall, our community comes through in a big way and this year is no exception!!
Thank you to Colonel By Secondary School, St. Matthew High School, Annunciation of our Lord Parish, Epiphany Anglican, St. Brother Andre elementary, numerous businesses, hockey teams and families who collected on our behalf at Halloween!
The food received keeps our shelves stocked so that we can continue to provide food to those in need in our community.
Every year there are families in our area who will not have enough resources to celebrate Christmas or the holiday by purchasing the supplies for, and preparing, a special meal. If you would like to sponsor an individual family, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
We will be closed for food distribution on Friday December 25, 2015 and Friday January 1016, 2
that we provide a 4-day emergency supply of food (roughly based on Canada’s Food Guide) for families or households in need, every month!

Alice is a single mom with two children. She found herself laid off from her job, so returned to school to train for another career. During her studies, she worked a part-time job and also had a student loan, but found it very difficult to pay all of her bills and clothe and feed her family. She was able to come to get food to feed her family until she completed her course of study. She is now looking for full-time employment and is very hopeful that, one day, she will be a donor to the Food Cupboard. Her financial responsibilities have been overwhelming and being able to come for food has helped to ease her financial burden.
