Our Family Centre might be for you!
We recognize how tough juggling monthly budgets can be, especially when there are little mouths to feed. Community services and resources can also be difficult to navigate alone.
We’d love to help you find the support you need.
Support for families. Each year, our Family Centre offers programming to help you tackle topics like budgeting, cooking, literacy, parenting, and accessing city resources. Family Dinners are offered on the second Sunday of every month starting at 5:00 pm. This meal is planned with children in mind; enjoy some delicious food and our craft table!
Contact our Family Centre Coordinator, Diane Pearson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Back-to-school support – The Fair Start for Kids program, that runs every August, offers basic school supplies kits for grade-school students. Each kit conforms to supply lists provided by the Victoria school districts. Registration is limited, so please call in advance in May and early June to ensure that we order enough supplies for individual kits. Contact the Food Bank Guest Services (250-953-1588) to register. Limited emergency kits may be available once kits have been distributed on a first-come first-serve basis.
