The food bank is the heart of West Lincoln Community Care!
The food bank is the heart of West Lincoln Community Care. Clients are welcome to visit the grocery store-like atmosphere and choose the food they prefer. The entrance is separate from the store, offering privacy and discretion. There are reserved parking spots near the entrance and exit doors. The food bank offers non-perishable goods, fresh bread, milk and eggs, a changing selection of meat and frozen foods and hygiene products. We are supported by donations, local grocers, farmers, Hamilton Food Share, Food Rescue, food drives and our thrift store.
