Food Bank can be accessed through the front glass doors. There is a ramp outside and an elevator inside for those in need.
The Food Bank is a partner in the community with other churches, organizations, businesses, and schools. We serve the community with 23 openings each year — usually twice a month with the exception of July which only has one opening. NOTE : Due to facility restrictions during this pandemic, there will only be 1 opening each month (first Thursday) from September to December.
Approximately 93 families gather for each opening. In 2016 there were 2046 family visits, consisting of 3401 adults and 2358 children.
There are approximately 45 regular community volunteers. And, throughout the year there is additional volunteer support from the schools, the Transcona Railer Express Hockey Club, the businesses, TSEN, and beyond.
Food deliveries take place on Wednesdays with food served on Thursday.
If you are in need of the Transcona Food Bank, please call Winnipeg Harvest 204-982-3660 and register by the Friday before each opening! Doors open on Thursday at 9 am and food is served at 10 am.
