The Community Fund is available to assist low-income Delta residents who are in crisis situations by providing emergency food, food vouchers and bus tickets. It is supported by donations of cash and food to Deltassist.
Deltassist is not a Food Bank but rather a stop-gap for emergency situations. In addition to emergency food or bus tickets, clients will also be given information on other resources for food available in the community, and be informed that if they need to access further assistance they will have to do so from these other resources.
Occasionally we get a request for Community Fund assistance other than food or transportation. If the request is within the giving guidelines of our Community Partners, we will ask if the client would allow us to pass their name, contact information and request information along to one of these community partners, such as Churches or Service Clubs.
If you would like to donate to our Emergency Food Cupboard the following are items we can always use:
- Kraft Dinner
- Canned fruit
- Canned pasta
- Canned meats – chicken and ham
- Hearty soups
- Peanut Butter
- Granola bars
Please note, we are unable to provide assistance paying monthly bills such as rent, utilities and phones.
