The Cornerstone Pantry is motivated by our faith in Christ to serve our community by providing non-perishable food to families in need.

We make space to listen to their stories and customize their care/provisions as a practical means of offering love and hope.

We try to pack a variety of food in each box and do our best to accommodate any food preferences while keeping in mind the number of people in each household.

You can access the food bank once a month. Please contact us to schedule an appointment to pick up your food box.

We are only accepting ONLINE DONATIONS during the COVID crisis

The Pantry Team would like to thank everyone who has supported our food drive! We were able to sort and pack the food donated and are currently working to distribute them to our clients.

With the recent provincial mandate to close non-essential businesses, Cornerstone Centre will no longer be open on a regular basis. As such, we will no longer be able to accept physical food donations. However the Pantry will remain operational and you can continue to support us by making donations online. With your donated funds, we will be able to purchase food and have them delivered through online grocery stores.

Please support us by making a donation and designate your donation to “Cornerstone Pantry”.

Thank you so much for supporting Cornerstone Pantry!
