No registration necessary;  just come & bring your own bag.

Location: McDougall United Church, 8516 Athabasca Street SE.

Organized by a community group through the Acadia Networking & Action Group (ANAG)

  • Picking up food from the SPINZ program on the day of the pantry.  Need a vehicle and ability to pick up boxes.
  • Sorting food the day before the pantry into hampers. This takes approximately 2 hours.
  • Sorting food, assisting with distribution of food on the day of the pantry, from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm.
