Client Delivery

SPFoodBank provides food bank services to a range of low-income single parent families from all walks of life living in various areas of the lower mainland.  SPFB provides monthly mobile delivery service of quality, nutritional perishable foods that are often difficult to obtain at other food banks.  We provide baby items such as formula, food and diapers as they are donated; we will also purchase these items in emergency situations.

Where we do have a client pick-up location, it is kept confidential to protect the privacy of clients and the organization generously donating the space.  SPFB is actively seeking safe, clean, transit accessible locations where volunteers can distribute food packages on a monthly basis to low-income single parent families.

Info about us and to see if you Qualify 

We help Single Parent Families who can't use the regular Food Bank due to being "working poor" meaning they cant go to their local  food bank because they are working, or going to school when hampers are handed out, or their is a disability in the family that prevents them from going to the local Food Bank, transportation issues, or they can't bring their kids and that prevents them from visiting a local Food Bank. We are not here as an extra source of help but a means to fill a void caused by the issues mentioned above. Since most Food Banks do not deliver, this service that we will provide fills a service gap that is not currently available to Single Parents
