Food Bank

Providing food for our community

Our Master's Pantry has been serving the York Region community for over 20 years by providing families with fresh food, canned goods and other items that they may need for the month. Many people who come to the Master’s Pantry, come on the recommendation of a York Region government agency.

How does it work?

Our Master's Pantry food bank is open for you to use once a month. Although, we regularly host two separate pantries per month, we ask that you only come to one as we seek to meet each family's need.

Our food bank functions as a "drive-thru". Anyone looking to receive food, will drive up to the doors and pop open their trunk. One of our volunteers will then load a box of food in your trunk for you.

It's my first time, what do I need?

Our Master's Pantry food bank is open to everyone. There is no pre-registration required, all you need to do is come and our volunteers will register you on the spot. Upon your first visit, please bring:

  • a copy of your ID
  • proof of your income
  • proof of rent

When are the pantries?

Typically twice a month on a Saturday from 9 am - 10:30 am. See our calendar for upcoming dates >>

What about Christmas?

In November, Master’s Pantry begins its Christmas “Hampers of Hope” campaign which concludes mid-December. Approximately 200 hampers containing everything for a wonderful Christmas dinner and gifts for each member of the family.

How do I get a Christmas Hamper?

Applications are typically open on November 1st and the hampers ready by mid-December.
