Hope Emergency Food Hampers
Hope Emergency Food Hamper Program is specifically to assist people living in the region of Kitchener-Waterloo who struggled to feed themselves and their families daily. We are here to make food accessible to those who do not have food and can benefit from this program.
How to Access:
Visit 19 Kingswood Drive, Kitchener Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please bring a valid piece of identification with your name on it. Please call ahead to book an appointment. Call: 226-700-0769.
Please note we request that you book an appointment to pick up your hamper and this will be done by parking lot pickup – when you arrive on site, you can call again, and your hamper will be made available.
Food hampers contains 4-7 days’ worth of food
Hampers may be accessed once every calendar month, e.g., if you receive a hamper in August, you are next eligible for a hamper in September, if there are seven days between visits.
Hampers will include a mix of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and dry and canned goods. Cultural and dietary needs are considered.
Baby food, diapers and personal hygiene items are also distributed when available.
