Most Needed Food Items

During COVID-19, we are unable to accept food donations the way we usually do. We encourage you to hold on to these items and donate them when operations return to normal. If you have a donation of pet food, we ask those donations be made at the KW Pet Food Bank or KW Humane Society.


Currently, our most needed food items are:
  • Canned Fruit
  • Stew, Chili & Soup
  • Beans in Sauce
  • Hot & Cold Cereal
  • Canned Meat & Fish
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Dry Beans
  • Rice
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Vegetables

While food is our top priority, we do accept unopened bags of pet food and non-food items, such as personal care and hygiene products and cleaning supplies.

Region of Waterloo Public Health has developed Nutritional Guidelines to help you purchase foods that have the maximum nutritional value. Food donations can be dropped off at The Food Bank, in the bin at your local grocery store, fire hall or police division.
