  • rolled oats and other breakfast cereals;
  • pancake mix and maple syrup;
  • peanut or nut butters, tuna and other proteins;
  • tomatoes, sauces, soups, stews, and other canned goods;
  • dry or canned beans and pulses;
  • noodles, rice and other grains;
  • cake mix and icing, canned fruit, honey;
  • gluten-free foods and ready-to-eat foods;
  • toothpaste, sanitary products, hand creams and other toiletry items.

PLEASE, NO EXPIRED ITEMS.

You can bring items to the bins located in municipal buildings between now and December 15.

The Public Safety Unit works with CLSC Métro, which identifies families in the community that can benefit from the food baskets. Our officers will deliver the baskets around mid-December.

Thank you for your generosity.
