We distribute once a month (usually mid-month) and the dates and times are on our dedicated food bank message line:
All you need to do to receive Food bank subsidy is call 250-559-4100 and leave your name, number of people in household, contact number, and specify the community you will be picking up from (DG or Skidegate).
Pick-up happens at two locations: the IWS or Skidegate United Church on the dates and times specified on message line.
Donations may be dropped off at Islands Wellness Society during office hours or contact 250-559-8843 if you have donations you need picked up.
Islands Wellness Society adopted the food bank during the summer of 2013. It has been a tremendous undertaking and we want to acknowledge all the people who have worked tirelessly to make it a viable service to the communities of Haida Gwaii. Our mission is to “Feed the People” who need a little extra help along the way.
We work with Gwaii Co-op, and City Centre stores, as well as other local food programs and gardeners to provide as much fresh food and produce as we can.
A big haw’aa to Gwaii Trust and to everyone for the help and support! It takes a community to raise a child, but it also takes that whole community working together to make it thrive!
