Championing a vision of a nourished and thriving community free of poverty, the Surrey Food Bank provides food to families living in Surrey and North Delta. They pride themselves on providing nutritious food in a respectful and dignified environment. In addition, believe in connecting their clients to other community services as a means of helping them become self-sufficient, taking pride that we “Invite, Inform, Involve and Inspire” our community.

As a non-profit, charitable organization, the Surrey Food Bank operates because of the support that they get from volunteers and donors, in time, money and food donations, and they receive no core government funding.
