Don’t Go Hungry: Spring Donation Drive

The City is supporting a donation drive this spring for the Don’t Go Hungry Food Program. Every Saturday, this food hamper program serves 1,300 people in New Westminster and south Burnaby who can’t access weekday food programs due to work hours. Many of those accessing the program are new arrivals to Canada, and two-thirds are families, including over 400 children.

Donation bins will be available until May 31, 2023, at Anvil Centre and the Glenbrook and Queensborough Fire Halls. The following items are in high demand:

  • Canned proteins: e.g. nut butters, canned meat (tuna, salmon, etc.), beans, and chili
  • Chunky-style canned soup
  • Children's snacks: e.g. applesauce, fruit cups, fruit gummies/bars, snack-size crackers or cookies, and granola bars
  • Personal care products: e.g. toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, feminine hygiene products, shaving cream and razors, toilet paper, diapers (especially size 5 and 6), deodorant, and soap
  • Dish soap and laundry soap
