How can I pitch in?

Contact the closest food bank listed below to find out how you can effectively volunteer or donate following the disaster. Consider donating money instead of food, as this can be done from the safety of your home and will avoid the complications of sorting and distributing varied food items. 

If you wish to give food, our food banks will be seeking ready-to-eat staples like pop-top meat / fish, powdered milk, cereal, canned fruit, fruit cups, peanut butter and jelly. Cleaning supplies such as bleach and paper towels will also be accepted. In addition to donating at food bank facilities, local grocers may provide collection points for donations.
