Reaching Home Hamper Program

Reaching Home Hampers, part of St. Alban’s Outreach and Advocacy, has been providing weekly ‘nutritious hampers’ to 30+ Richmond families in need since the spring of 2020.  Reaching Home Hampers is partnered with the Richmond School District – Counsellors and School Administrators identify and recommend families, with school-age children, to the program who are struggling with food insecurity and need additional support. The program strives to meet the needs in an equitable manner, mindful of ethnic and cultural diversity as well as dietary sensitivities. The food hampers have an emphasis on fresh fruit, produce, milk, eggs, bread, and protein (either animal or vegetarian).

Currently, this program supports about 400 Richmond children monthly struggling with food security concerns.

If you are interested in assisting with this program – as a volunteer driver or packer please contact : stablanshampers@outlook.com  Monetary donations (cheque, memo: hamper program) may be mailed to or dropped off at the church office, or online through CanadaHelps:  https://www.canadahelps.org/en/
