Vernon BC Food Bank Information

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.

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.

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.
