Langley Food Bank
The food bank has always relied on God and the generosity of the community and has never run out of food or had to ask for more. During the early years services provided included a café serving hot meals, free clothing, laundry and shower services as well as the grocery distribution. Eventually other community resources provided these needs and it was decided to focus on the grocery distribution and use the space to expand that aspect. We continue to provide a birthday closet for our clients’ children up to the age of 12.
In order to help us meet these objectives, the Langley Food Bank has been set up in a mini-mart style. Groceries are stocked in various categories on store shelves so that clients can make their own selection from each category. Quantity limits are set depending on the size of the family. Langley Food Bank volunteers assist each client in making their selections and bagging their groceries. Registered clients may come for groceries once each week.
