Richmond Hill Community Food Bank now offers free home delivery
In the face of the continuing COVID-19 emergency, the manager and board of directors at our Richmond Hill Community Food Bank have started up a food home delivery service for eligible clients.
Existing or new clients in need who:
- are 65 years of age or older, with mobility/transportation issues; or
- have a disability or mobility issues that prevent them from coming to the food bank.
As with all our qualifying clients, you must also live in Richmond Hill or Thornhill to be able to use our free home delivery service.
Our food bank has partnered with another York Region transportation agency to offer this service. This new program allows us to reach out to vulnerable individuals and families who need emergency food aid, but have difficulty coming in person to our food bank, especially in the face of heightened worries about the virus.
To arrange for our free home delivery service, call our manager, Lee Reynolds, to discuss your needs and situation at 905-508-4761.
