Household Items

The Mission does not have sufficient space to accept furniture, decorative items (rugs, curtains, mirrors), appliances (lamps, heaters, etc), or entertainment equipment (tv's). These items can be donated at the Parker Street Furniture Bank

However, we help many people to move from shelter to boarding house, and are always in need of household necessities including towels, bedding, dishware, pots, cutlery, mugs.

If in doubt, ask yourself if an item is a "necessity", see below (other items) or call our office.

Food

Our foodbank provides grocery support for families and individuals who have access to a kitchen. We appreciate donations of all non-perishable foods; must be unopened, within expiry period, and labels must be intact. (non-perishables include: canned goods, boxed goods (crackers, cereal).

Our Breakfast Program serves 60-100 breakfasts every day. Large bottles of peanut butter, jam, maple syrup, and ketchup are always in demand. (such items must retain original seals and labels, and be within any expiry dates)

Please call to discuss if you have perishables such as fruit and vegetables. 

To keep our guests safe, we generally cannot accept pre-cooked, homemade foods.
