Emergency Food Cupboard

Emergency Food Cupboard

We are looking for volunteers to do one or two 1 hour shift(s) a month! Interested in helping out? See below for more information. 

Our small neighbourhood Food Cupboard provides emergency food to neighbourhood families and individuals in need. Generally, we offer non-perishable food and hygiene products. On a less frequent basis, we have perishable food available including fruit, vegetables, and meat.

Location: 470 Auden Rd Community Room (corner of Eastview & Auden Rd.). It is in a small brick building will silver mailboxes on the outside. It is viewable from Auden Road.

It is open twice a week:

  • Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:30pm (Neighbour Support Worker available during this time)
  • Saturday mornings 9am–10am

How do I get there?
It is located in close proximity to 3 bus routes with nearby stops: Route 13, 3A & 3B

Where does the food come from? 
Our cupboard is stocked by a monthly Guelph Food Bank order, donations from generous community members, and from time to time by Neighbourhood Group purchases for high demand items, such as peanut free school snacks.

How do I donate to the Cupboard?

Donations can be dropped off during open hours or during office hours at the Grange Hill East Community Room at 525 Grange Road. Alternatively, please email info@gheng.ca or call 519-836-9427 to arrange a time. 

Items in high demand: Peanut free school snacks, Pasta sauce, Canned meat & fish, Canned vegetables, Cereal, Peanut butter, Grocery cards for perishable items

How do I volunteer at the Cupboard?

Volunteers make what we do possible! The food cupboard is open twice a week for 1 hour at a time. We are always looking for volunteers to cover one or two 1 hour shifts a month. During your shift you would be paired with another volunteer from the neighbourhood. Together you will welcome patrons, organize items, and collect small amounts of information.

Get in touch with our Neighbourhood Support Worker by stopping by the food cupboard on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm, emailing info@gheng.ca, or calling 519-836-9437

Thank you for your interest!
