We Fight Hunger in the North.

The Whitehorse Food Bank is a community-based organization that provides emergency food to people in need. We provide emergency food hampers to as many as 1900 people a month.

We are generously supported by many individuals, families, schools, churches, businesses and other organizations throughout the year.

Together, we all help feed hungry people in our community.


What do We Do?


Every calendar month a person can access a Hamper that has seven days worth of food in it. Hampers are sized to that of members of each family.


Many Communities across the Yukon, receive a shipment of  Hampers (shelf stable food only) each month, these hampers have approximately seven days worth of food in it. Contact out Manager of Community Service, Chris, to figure out how to get on the distribution list for your community. mvcs@whitehorsefoodbank.ca

Ways you can help!

Every month, people donate hundreds of hours of time to help the Food Bank provide emergency food to people. From stocking shelves to growing food to helping with a food drive, volunteers keep us operational! If you’d like to pitch in and volunteer for the Food Bank, please visit our Volunteer page!

To help feed our community, the Food Bank needs reliable financial support year round. If you’d like to learn about different ways you can donate to the Food Bank, please visit our Donate Money page. All financial donations are tax deductible.

Food donations are needed year round. In addition to donating food during our food drives, people can drop food off at the major grocery stores in town or at the Food Bank. To learn more about what to donate and how, please visit our Donate Food page.


Policy Change

October 28th 2021,

In light of the recommendations from the Acting Chief Medical Officer and the mandates coming from the Yukon Territorial Government in regards to not-for-profit organizations, the following changes will be coming into effect:

  • As of December 1st 2021 all Food Bank volunteers and staff will need to attest to having received, at least, their first Covid-19 vaccination, and be able to provide a plan on when they will receive their second as soon as safely possible. Staff and Volunteers who are not in compliance with this new policy will be asked to take a hiatus from the Food Bank until recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer and the Yukon Territorial Government change.
  • The Whitehorse Food Bank, and its satellites in the communities, will continue to enforce mask protocols for anyone in any of our buildings.
  • The Whitehorse Food Bank is an essential service, as are its satellites in the communities. With that in mind, while we encourage everyone to get vaccinated, our clients will be able to continue to access our services without requiring proof or attestation.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to these policies please feel free to reach out to our Executive Director, Dave Blottner, ed@whitehorsefoodbank.ca. Thank you all for your compliance and compassion throughout these times.
