How it Works

Your First Visit to Manna

The Manna Food Bank is open Tuesdays from 11 am - 6 pm & Fridays 11 am - 4 pm with the exception of statutory holidays.

Our mission is to ensure that the immediate needs of the hungry are met, and to treat our clients with dignity and respect.

For first time clients it is necessary to collect some information.
We must collect this information for record-keeping purposes in order to understand the make-up of the families we serve.

The Manna Food Bank maintains files containing information about its clients. Your information is confidential. We will never share it with anyone.

If you are in need of groceries, we’re here to help! Please fill out this New Client Information Form before visiting Manna- i.e. name and address, the number of people in your family including ages, type of housing, income source.

This form should be submitted with your order if it is your first visit.
This information is confidential and is not shared with anyone.
Please note when you arrive at the food bank for your first visit some photo ID for you and every member of your household will be required.

  • requests for groceries may be pre-ordered either on-line or by telephone. 
  • For telephone orders call 705 646 0114 and leave your name and telephone number. A Volunteer will call you to take your order.

You will be assigned points based on the number of people in your family.
You are asked to fill out a grocery order form in which items have a point value. Peanut butter is worth 3 points, and canned pasta is worth 2 points for example. You then select what you need, using up the value of points that you are assigned, and volunteers assemble your groceries.

You can fill out and submit your grocery list online, or you can phone the food bank at 705-646-0114, leave a message and a volunteer will call you back to take your grocery order over the phone.

Additional Items

Please update your information on file with us, i.e. number of family members, address, telephone number

In addition to the food items included on the Grocery List, other products are offered on our Pantry Shelves and in our Food Rescue area. 

Subsequent Visits to Manna

Our clients may use the food bank once every three weeks. However: it is our policy that no hungry person or family will be turned away from Manna.
