Kits Program

Managed by young volunteers. It offers four types of kits: Essentials, Hygiene, Warmth, and Cold.

The kits, in various sizes, are filled with critical products and resource information.
They are gifted to people experiencing homelessness and those near homeless, refugees, and those experiencing financial insecurity.
We also partner with organizations that serve children, adults and elderly residents who are less likely to access the food bank system.
