Riverwood Food Bank is currently located at 274 Talbot Ave.
The building we call ‘The Garage’ which has a historic past as an auto body shop. We partner with Harvest Manitoba to provide groceries to Elmwood families every week. Every Wednesday morning we unload the delivery truck and prepare for our two food banks which occur in the afternoon and evening. We strive to keep the process welcoming, dignifying and free of discrimination. Our healthy food policy also helps keep us focused on providing good food that will encourage healthy eating habits and give our neighbours the opportunity to thrive.
