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.
