Support Our Food Program
Over the course of a year, Community Care of West Niagara will acquire and distribute over 110,000 lbs. of nutritious food for empty cupboards.
Why Support the Food Program?
CCWN provides emergency food to an average of 350 families per month who are living below the poverty line in West Niagara. Families can come once per calendar month for their perishable and non-perishable grocery pickup, and once per week for perishable items such as fresh produce and bread.

We will gratefully receive any food donations at the rear receiving door of the CCWN building, Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm. Please let us know you are bringing a donation by ringing the doorbell at receiving or stopping in at reception so we can meet you at the receiving area.
Food We Cannot Accept
We want to ensure all your donations make it to the tables of those in need, so to prevent waste please avoid donating the following:
-Over the counter medications (i.e. Tylenol, Advil etc.)
-Home baked-goods or food prepared in a home environment
-Personally wrapped meats
-Opened food items, or food not in its original container/packaging
-Candy and snack food items in packaging that can easily be tampered with or contaminated (i.e. -individual raisin boxes, foil-wrapped treats etc.)
When donating snacks please keep in mind that a nutritious treat is always preferred.
*The above standards are put in place by Food Banks Canada, and are to be utilized by all registered food banks and food programs.
