The Food Bank

The St Luke's Food Bank is a member of Kawartha Food Share

What is the Food Bank

The Food Bank provides a good selection of canned and dried goods, as well, as fresh vegetables and a variety of other food items. The Food Bank is supported by the people of St Luke's and friends of the parish. We are a partner with Kawartha Food Share. There is no cost to get food from our Food Bank.

When is it open

The Food Bank is open every Friday from 10:30 am to 1 pm. Please note that in holiday seasons, the day may vary. This is so we can make sure folks have food during any holidays. So, just check at those times of the year for any adjustments.

Who is it for

The Food Bank is here to help you have an ample and healthy supply of food. You will be warmly welcomed. People come to the Food Bank from around East City and Peterborough. If it's your first time, we will ask you to register for Kawartha Food Share. It only takes a couple minutes.

COVID Precautions

Masks are REQUIRED at St Luke's

    Hello is the food bank open all week or only on Fridays please let me know thanks

    • Father Glenn on 26 April 2022 at 12:58 AM

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for your enquiry. At the moment, the Food Bank is open only on Fridays. Occasionally, when there is a holiday, it may move to another day of the week but normally the Food Bank day is Fridays.

      All the best,

      Parish Priest

      Good day, Wendy,

      Many thanks for your enquiry. I will pass along your note to our Food Bank Co-ordinator. I am sure she will be in touch soon. It makes sense for the two of you to connect directly so that you can find out more and see if the opportunity will fit for you.

      Blessings to you and thank you again,

      Parish Priest
