Covid-19 Virus and the Pantry

The Covid-19 virus is changing the way we lead our daily lives.
The 7 Hills Community Pantry is no exception.

We will continue to provide food for our clients and anyone else within the community who is struggling at this time.

We have, however, needed to change how we operate in order to provide this service. This decision was made to protect our clients & volunteers, and to prevent the transmission of this virus throughout our community. We are asking our clients to call 705-924-2077 and leave a message prior to Friday, specifying what items they may require, as well as a phone number where we can reach them in order to schedule a time for their pick up on Friday between 11:15 and 12:30.

We understand that there are some clients who do not have phones, so we will provide them with what they need when they come to the food bank on Fridays no matter what.

The community, once again, has offered their help. We will post which items are required on our Facebook page as our shelves are depleted.

We thank you for your help & understanding.  We all have to do what we can to contain this virus.

Stay healthy,

Carolyn Lee

We will be receiving food donations along the parade route of the Santa Claus parade, thanks to the help form the Warkworth Guiding, who will be collecting items. We are currently running low on tuna, peanut butter, juice, chunky soup, instant coffee, Kleenex, shampoo and conditioner.
