Tiny Bundles is a Surrey Food Bank program specifically designed for pregnant moms and families with babies aged newborn to one year. Pregnancy and the first year of a baby's life are critically important for healthy development. Proper nutrition and support lays a good foundation for the rest of their lives.
Tiny Bundles "moms" receive a food hamper every week (instead of every two weeks) as well as fresh eggs and milk while pregnant or nursing. Hampers are supplemented with fresh vegetables and other nutritional items when available.
New parents receive a baby layette when their baby is born and a grad gift package when the baby turns one year old.
As a Tiny Bundles mom, you are eligible to receive assistance from the food bank once a week on Wednesday's from 9:00am - 1:00pm. If you are expecting you will receive dairy products. If you have a child and are breastfeeding you will receive dairy products. If you have a child and are not breastfeeding you will receive formula.
Tiny Bundles mothers will also be provided with toiletries and other products when available.
Clients must provide proof of address, photo identification, dependents as well as proof of income which will demonstrate need.
