[ARCHIVED] Nelson Food Banks Looking for Donations

Food Bank

March 31, 2020

As Covid-19 continues to impact our community, Nelson’s food banks are working to protect our most vulnerable neighbours. Over the past month, while most businesses are seeing a decline in customers, our food banks are seeing an increase.

To make a financial donation to one of the three local food banks:

SALVATION ARMY
Make cheque payable to “The Salvation Army”
Mail to: 601 Vernon Street, Nelson BC, V1L 4E9
Online: www.salvationist.ca
(Click donate, then select BC, then Nelson Community Church)

NELSON COMMUNITY FOOD CENTRE
Online: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/
Select BN: 828762344 R0001
(or click link on their website www.nelsoncfc.ca)
Mail to:602 Silica Street, Nelson BC V1L 4N1

ST. SAVIOURS FOOD PANTRY
Make Cheque payable to “St Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral”
Write in memo line: Food Pantry
Mail to: 701 Ward St, Nelson, BC V1L 1T3
Drop cheque off: Secure mail slot at the back door of the church (in the alley)

“What we are seeing right now is unprecedented,” says Lt. Michelle Cale of The Salvation Army’s Community Food Bank. “There is a rise in groups of individuals and families accessing services in our community, some for their first time. Cale adds, "We want our community to know we are all ready to support you with open access to service."

“To date, we’ve been able to meet the demands because of the on-going generosity of our community, but we will not be able to keep this pace for much longer, without increased support. Supplies are reaching dangerously low levels for our local food banks, says Cale. While we all rely on community partners and the government to get through these difficult times, we are also asking for the general public’s help.”
