The Westboro Region Food Bank is committed to providing more than just food assistance with the following programs.

Food Assistance

If you need emergency food assistance and live in the area bound by the Ottawa River, Island Park Drive, Dovercourt Avenue and Broadview Avenue, we're here to help you.


Our mandate is to provide three days worth of emergency food once a month.  This includes food appropriate for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Our hampers contain a mixture of non-perishables (canned and dry food) and perishables (eggs, milk, meat and vegetables), depending upon availability.


Visit the Assistance page for more information about requirements and what you should bring with you.

Westboro Community Kitchen

A Community Kitchen, hosted by Carlington Community Health Center and Westboro Beach Community Association, is held on the fourth Monday of the month (except December).

Check the Events page for the next Community Kitchen

This is an opportunity to:

  • cook with friends

  • share recipes

  • learn cooking skills

  • share a meal

Fresh Garden Produce

In the spring of 2014, the children of All Saints' Anglican church planted a three garden beds on the west side of the church.   In 2015 we received a grant from "Greening Sacred Spaces" to build three more garden beds.  The produce grown in these gardens is to provide for the Westboro Region Food Bank.  If you want to help with the gardening, please email
