If you or someone you know is in a difficult time of need, emergency food hampers are available for individuals and families throughout the year. The Christmas Food program, including turkeys, halal chicken, ham and gift cards, are available in December.
Emergency Food Hamper Program is here to help people living in the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo who have no food and no way of getting some.
How to Access:
Visit 807 Guelph Street, Kitchener Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please bring a valid piece of identification with your name on it. Please call ahead to book an appointment. Call: 519-742-0662.
Please note the procedures have changed – we now request that you book an appointment to pick up your hamper and this will be done by curbside pickup – when you arrive on site, you can call again and your hamper will be made available.
