Weekly Grocery Hamper Delivery Program

The NPNA is putting together free, weekly grocery hampers made up of produce, bread, dairy, some non-perishable items and eggs. These are sorted and delivered by volunteers on Thursdays between 12-3pm. If you live in North Park, and would benefit from a hamper, please contact executivedirector@npna.ca.

Thank you to the funders that are making this program possible: First Metropolitan Church, North Park Bicycle Shop, the Foodshare Network, the City of Victoria, The Red Cross, Cobbs Bread, and Modo Care Share.

Thank you to Peter Chalmers, Communications Co-Op Student at First Met Church for making this video about the NPNA’s grocery hamper program!
