Donate Food

The Killarney and Area Foodbank accepts food donations of nearly any type. Food must be within its use-by date and not spoiled. Please check dates BEFORE donating items.

We also accept toiletries such as soap and shampoo.

Donations can be dropped off at the foodbank itself, when open. Food collection bins are also located at Boundary Co-Op (Killarney), Killarney School, Lakeside Christian School and various churches in the town.

Alternatively contact us directly to arrange for a collection or drop-off of food donations.

Note: Tax receipts are issued for donations of $10 or over. CanadaHelps will give receipts automatically. For other donations, be sure to let us know your mailing address to send you a receipt.

Donations-in-kind

Businesses can make donations-in-kind - a donation of your business goods or services - in return for which we can issue a tax receipt for the value of those goods/services.

Such donations are usually for building maintenance. Normally we will reach out to businesses as required, but feel free to contact us to offer any form of donation that you think would be helpful to us.
