Please come to the mission any day of the week during office hours to fill out a food bank order. Order forms filled on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will be ready for pick up on Fridays after 1pm. Order forms filled on Monday and Friday will be ready for pickup on Tuesdays after 1pm. Orders and pickup both take place at the mission – 58 Water St. West.

Ever wondered if you are facing food insecurity and whether you should consider reaching out to Morningstar for help? Check out our food insecurity checklist below.

Food insecurity checklist

 

  • On a weekly basis I miss or skip meals because I do not have enough food.
  • Sometimes I go more than one full day without eating.
  • I rely on cheaper and less nutritious foods.
  • In the past 12 months I have worried that the food I have will run out before I have enough money to buy more.
  • In the past 12 months the food I bought did not last and I did not have money to buy more.
  • In the past 12 months I have needed to rely on community services, neighbours, or family to provide enough food for the month.

If you checked yes to any of these questions, we would encourage you to reach out.

If you would like to inquire about receiving food from our food bank, please call 613-354-6355, or simply drop by on weekdays between 10:00am and 4:00pm. There must be a minimum of 1 month between food bank requests.

Morningstar Foodbank pick-up hours:

Tuesday and Friday
1:00pm – 4:00pm

For those in need of additional food bank services, please reach out to Napanee Salvation Army. They are a registered food bank that is completely separate from Morningstar Mission.
