Deltassist takes over operation of North Delta food bank

Gore Mutual Foundation has pledged to match up all cash donations to the food bank before April 30

The North Delta food bank has a new home at Deltassist.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Deltassist is utilizing alternate and creative ways to maintain the well-being of the community.

“We understand that many people are having to endure extraordinary financial constraints at this time. For this reason Deltassist has stepped forward to temporarily run the Food Bank in North Delta while it’s regular operation is suspended,” says a news release from the organization.

The temporary food bank, which opened on Wednesday, April 8, is for North Delta residents only; the food bank in South Delta remains in operation.

To be eligible for assistance, you must either already be registered with the North Delta food bank, be low income, or be in need of food because you have insufficient funds due to work lay offs or shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to qualify, Deltassist will need to see ID for all members of the household, proof of residency in North Delta, and, if applicable, CareCards for all children in the family.

To access the North Delta Food bank, call Deltassist’s North Delta office at 604-594-3455 and leave your name and phone number with reception. (Access to the food bank must be pre-arranged by phone.)

Further, you must be available for an intake call to register you with the food bank from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, be prepared to provide proof as requested, and be available to come at your assigned pick up time for assistance.

For more information on what’s happening at Deltassist, visit deltassist.com/news. For assistance, call 604-594-3455 or 604-946-9526, or email inquiry@deltassist.com.

If you would like to donate toward the measures Deltassist is implementing to help the community during this crisis, Gore Mutual Foundation has pledged to match up to $2 million all donations made through the following link before Thursday, April 30: www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/deltassist-family-and-community-services-society/campaign/covid-response.
