As many of you may be aware, the food bank will be moving from it’s current location at: 10732 City Parkway in Whalley, to a new and larger location in Newton. It’s a huge undertaking, and we’ve been waiting over ten years to take it.
Starting Monday, June 22, 2020 the food bank will be closed to the public as we tear down the existing food bank, and make our way to our new home.
We will continue to be closed to until Monday, July 6, 2020, when we will re-open our distribution services, and will once again be accepting food donation on site.
The big question everyone has been asking, is…..where will the new food bank located, and we are pleased to finally tell you that….
Our new location will be: 13478 78th Ave, Surrey (in Newton)
