Welcome to the Vernon House of Hope Vernon BC Food Bank

We operate under the name "House of Hope" because we work every day to restore a sense of hope and dignity for all who enter our doors. We invite you to take a look at our beliefs, values, and mission by simply clicking on the "About Us" button.

The Salvation Army Food Bank in Vernon BC is a member of Food Banks British Columbia (FBBC) and an affiliated member of the Canadian Association of Food Banks. We are the only authorized Food Bank in Vernon.

The House of Hope has been an active contributor to Vernon's social fabric for over 25 years. More than 1100 people are being assisted through the Food Bank's programs each month. About 32% of those we assist are youth and children under the age of 18 years. Each of these needy persons would have gone hungry without the generous support and kindness of our community.

Clients who wish to receive assistance are invited to make an appointment to see an intake worker. They are required to bring in the following information:

  • identification for each household member
  • proof of address
  • proof of rent
  • proof of income

Monetary donations to the House of Hope are gratefully accepted at any time. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off directly at the House of Hope, or at donation bins in participating grocery stores in Vernon.

Businesses and groups are also encouraged to run food drives of their own.

Please contact the Vernon House of Hope if you are interested in running such a drive on our behalf. Hungry families will experience renewed hope because you cared enough to share.

We Provide:

  • support
  • donation bins
