Hello and welcome to Harvest Food Bank. We are a volunteer-run, non-profit, community organization focused on helping those who are experiencing food-insecurity. From our Port Hardy location we serve the entire Regional District of Mount Waddington.
The food bank provides monthly food boxes which are distributed throughout the region. Local schools receive food in support of various meal programs. Food is also provided to some community groups in support of local social services programs.
New and used items which have been donated by community members or that we have purchased are sold in our retail store. Revenue from store sales is used to operate the food bank.
The Port Hardy Harvest Food Bank was established to relieve poverty by providing food to persons in need. We first opened our doors in February 1998, and incorporated on November 16, 1998 as non-profit society number S-0039048 under the BC Society Act.
Our first location was in rented premises at 7135 Market Street. In 2004 we purchased our present location, the former Napa Auto Parts store across the road at 7120 Market Street.
