Food Hamper Program

First and foremost, the Social Concern Office is a Food Bank! We offer nutrious packages, or "Hampers" consisting of non-perishable items, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables when available. The hampers have been carefully designed by a certified nutritionist to provide maximum health benefits.

Clients are eligible for a food hamper once every 30 days. If you are unsure about the last time you recieved help, you can now check online!.

The Social Concern Office is open 8:30am - 12:00pm, and 1:00pm - 4:00pm Monday to Friday for families and individuals. We are closed for special holidays and encourage our clients to check beforehand.
