Share the Love, Fill a Pantry

March 19

Southridge: St. Catharines Location

Our Housing First and Home for Good teams provide support for close to 100 people that are housed in and around the St. Catharines area.  

The pandemic has presented many challenges to all of us, but none greater than our friends who have successfully found housing but continue to live on small, fixed incomes. Knowing that our Southridge community includes many people who are living mostly alone and with limited funds, let’s get really practical with this “no need among us” initiative! 

We are launching the “Share the Love, Fill a Pantry” food drive.  The goal of this drive is to put together deluxe grocery bags for friends in our community who are struggling to fill their pantries. 

The process is safe and easy, but we need you!  Simply purchase groceries from the suggested list below.  Drop these groceries off at the Glenridge location, beside the shelter entrance, in the drop off boxes over the next two weeks.  The groceries will be sorted and distributed the following weeks by housing workers and volunteers. Also appreciated are grocery store gift cards, or cash donations (so that our staff can add some fresh perishable items to make these deliveries extra special). 

A drop-off box will be available at the Shelter (201 Glenridge Ave) between 8am & 4pm daily, outside of the shelter doors. After 4pm, simply call the Shelter front desk (905 682 2477) from your vehicle and staff will come and safely collect.

Most needed items:
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tuna
  • KD
  • Can openers
  • Crackers
  • Granola bars
  • Hearty soup/chili/stew
  • Cookies
  • Instant Oatmeal
  • Bagels
  • Jam
  • Peanut Butter

Thanks so much for helping those experiencing food insecurity in this season!
