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 a purely volunteer based operation. We believe in “community serving community” and promote respect and dignity when serving our clients. Approximately 3-5% 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 55 family units/week in 2020.  This represents 135 people assisted weekly.

Due to COVID-19 etc., 2020 was an extraordinary year for Hinton Food Bank demand.  Very busy March to May and again from Oct. to Dec., but below normal when CERB was available. Also, there were two periods (April-June and Dec) when hamper delivery service was offered. The March Hunger Count was not undertaken in 2020.
