Food Bank

Whistler’s Food Bank provides an essential service for a range of people based in the Sea to Sky corridor.

Who is it for?

It is for anyone and everyone experiencing food insecurity. It is supplementary food provided to those who do not have the means to access or provide food for themselves. Many people, including children, rely on our food bank for a significant portion of their food and nutrition. It could be a short term solution for an injury, job change, relocation or just an altered circumstance.
