What are the requirements to receive food from the food bank?
Anyone can apply for assistance, however there is a 2 month window between the times you can receive help. If you require more assistance during the 2 month period, have a case manager such as Ontario Works worker, fax a request to Vincent Place.

When you come to the food bank, please ensure that you have proper identification for all family members, such as a driver’s license, status card etc.
