Most Needed Items
If you would like to donate food items, we have a current “Most Needed Items” list available.
We are stewards in the collection and purchase of food for distribution to people in need in our Hinton community.
We cater to families and individuals in a variety of situations, ranging from single-parents, those on fixed incomes, the working poor, the under or unemployed, and those with other social or economic barriers.
The Hinton Food Bank is largely volunteer-based, supported by a part-time paid coordinator. We believe in “community serving community” and promote respect and dignity when serving our clients. Over 5% of residents in our community rely on the food bank to help meet their needs, either on an ongoing or temporary basis. Our clients have incomes that do not cover basic living costs. Unfortunately, food banks are needed to bridge this gap.
The Hinton Food Bank provided food to an average of 71 family units/week in 2022. This represents 147 people assisted weekly.

Total People Served
Since the Canadian Central bank rate hikes in later 2022 and food inflation increases, we are now seeing an average of 80 client/households per week. This represents 135 people assisted weekly.
