Appointments strongly recommended!!

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Feed Enderby & District Food Bank (FED) will be distributing monthly food hampers over four days instead of two days in April – April 14 & 15 and April 21 & 22 – to reduce person-to-person contact, ensure social distancing and protect the health of food bank users and volunteers.

Food delivery is available!    Please call 250-938-3114 to arrange it.  Drivers can take your food to your home and leave it at your door.  They can’t take you home though, cuz COVID.

To accommodate the change, FED is asking anyone with an appointment in April to contact the food bank as soon as possible at 250-938-3114 so their appointment time can be adjusted. 

 

We strongly urge you to make an appointment to pick up food!! 

Food is normally distributed on the second and third Tuesday of each month, but April 2020 is different!

To make an appointment, call (250) 938-3114     (10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday)

 

Why appointments?  Because we order perishable food — milk, eggs, cheese, vegetables, fruit — based on how many people have made appointments.  We don’t want to run out of items at the end of the day, or have a lot of perishable food left over.  So . . . .

If you show up without an appointment, you will almost certainly get less food than you will get if you do have an appointment. You may be asked to come back at the end of the day to get whatever food is still available.

If you make an appointment but find that you must come in later in the day, be sure to call and let us know. After about an hour, we will give the food we’ve set aside for you to others unless you call to let us know of your change of plans.

If you have an appointment but cannot keep it at all, please call to cancel or reschedule.
