How To Visit The Food Banks

When you visit our food banks you will be checked-in by a greeter, who will scan your North Helpline card. If you do not have a card yet, they will direct you to a registration table where you can get a card. You will not need an ID to complete registration. Everyone will be strongly encouraged to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others. At this time, only staff and volunteers are allowed to enter the building at either location.

At this time, visits are not limited per week. If you require a No-Cook option, you will have the opportunity to request that.

In Lake City, there will be a designated volunteer or staff member handing out numbers. Once your number is called, you will be able to walk through the line to pick your food.

In Bitter Lake, there are no numbers, and we ask that you wait in line to walk through and select your food.

Bitter Lake Food Banks entrance is on the sidewalk on the small street that cuts through to the alley just east of Linden Ave North. The Food Bank is located on the ground floor of the SHAG building there.

In Lake City, the entrance to North Helpline Food Bank is at the south end of the building, at the driveways top. Clients walk down a short breezeway to the rear parking lot.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these process changes as we do our best to keep our community, volunteers, and staff healthy. We are looking forward to returning to our normal services soon.

The Need For Nutritious Food Grows: Nonprofit Agencies Serving Larger Populations In The Face Of The Covid

VICTORIA, BC The COVID-19 crisis is amplifying the need for access to basic needs, such as food, health care, and shelter throughout the region. Many individuals have lost their jobs, as their places of employment have closed, and many business owners are struggling to make ends meet without their usual revenue. As a result, many more people and families dont have the resources they need to meet their basic needs.

Non-profit agencies across the region are taking action to get the supports to people who need them.

People struggling in poverty know that Our Place is a safety net that will serve three meals a day to anyone who needs to eat, said Grant McKenzie of Our Place. The demand for food has definitely increased, and we are currently serving an extra 300 meals per day. Due to the pandemic, all 1,400 meals are being served at the gates of 919 Pandora.

However, not everyone knows how to access the available resources, or even that these resources are available. A number of partner agencies are working together to develop and distribute Community Resource Guides with information on how to access services related to food, health care, counselling, shelter and other services.

As a network of organizations focused on food security, the Food Share Network wants families, individuals, and the community to know that there are a number of different avenues available to access food resources.

Former Champion Marin Cilic Ends Dan Evans Us Open Run In Four Sets

Dan Evans US Open run came to an end with a four-set defeat by former champion Marin Cilic in the third round.

Evans was hoping to match last years string of performances at Flushing Meadows when he reached the last 16, but on Saturday he came out on the losing side of a near four-hour tussle on Court 17, going down 7-6 6-7 6-2 7-5.

The British number two will rue the three set points he missed in the first-set tie-break, with Cilic just proving the stronger at the big moments.

Cilic rising ?

US Open Tennis

The pair had met once before, at the Australian Open back in 2017, when Evans won in four sets and went on to reach the fourth round of a slam for the first time.

It is now eight years since Cilic won the title here, and he is in the latter stages of his career, but he has been in good form this season, particularly in a run to the semi-finals of the French Open.

The most memorable moments in the early stages of the match came courtesy of an over-enthusiastic fan. Evans eventually complained to the umpire, leading to a chant of Kick him out from other spectators.

Evans was having to work hard to stay on level terms and he saved two set points to send the opener to a tie-break.

He then created three chances to win the set but could not take any of them, double faulting on the third.

The second was just as competitive, with Evans getting the early break he craved only for Cilic to hit back.

New Feed Scarborough Location Also Home To Business Incubator Program

Feed Scarboroughs executive director Suman Roy, volunteer Dianne Dias and a mascot for the group celebrate the opening of the charitys latest food bank and an entrepreneurial program centre at 4630 Kingston Rd. on Feb. 12, 2022. Feed Scarborough photo

As more people in Scarborough are forced to turn to food banks, the food banks are changing.

Feed Scarboroughs latest location, in East Scarboroughs West Hill area, is open eight hours a day from Tuesday to Saturday to help people who are working but also want to use their services.

Many in Scarborough today are low-income earners whose after-tax family income falls below the low-income threshold and are unable to pick up groceries during a two- or three-hour window in the middle of the day, when many food banks open, Suman Roy, Feed Scarboroughs executive director, said as what the group calls its Rouge Park space opened last month.

One thing were seeing over and over is community members who have a job or even two but cant seem to put food on the table, Suman Roy said.

The location in Maystone Plaza at 4630 Kingston Rd. will be home to Feed Scarboroughs Business Incubation Program, also known as StartUp Scarborough, in which people can book spaces, watch webinars and meet with advisers and peers to bring their business ideas to life in Scarborough.

Last months opening ceremony in West Hill also featured an appearance by a raccoon mascot designed by two young artists, Austin Paparousis and Hazel Kuzell.
