Food Bank

Local churches, parishioners, and local citizens who were concerned that people within the community of Ladysmith had food needs that were not being met. The people came together as a group in 1997 to discuss what they could do.

Information was gathered from food banks, coordinators, books and personal experiences. The group came together again to discuss goals, operation of the food bank, volunteers, publicity, registration and rental of facilities.

In August of 1998, the Ladysmith Food Bank opened its doors. We currently provide service to individuals and families in the 245 exchange.


To register as a client in the Ladysmith Food Bank:
  1. You must live in the 245 telephone exchange area.
  2. Have at least one proof of your current address such as a current Hydro bill, Telus bill, utilities bill, something that shows where you live now.
  3. BC Care Cards for the entire family (we use the numbers from the cards as proof of the size of your family)
*Once registered, only your care card is required as proof.
