COVID-19 has created challenges for many of us. For our food banks, the pandemic has not only made the day-to-day operations of their services more difficult, but the number of people who are in need of this service is increasing.
Upper Canada and Vince’s Market have joined forces to support the Newmarket Food Pantry’s COVID-19 Hunger Relief efforts, with the aim to ensure that contactless food delivery remains uninterrupted.
Please help us support this important cause by buying a bag of groceries for our neighbours in need.
There are three grocery bag options:
$10 (plus tax): 5-7 Food Items
$20 (plus tax): 6-9 Food Items
$30 (plus tax): 10-12 Food Items
Each bag includes a variety of soup mixes, sweet peas, cream chowder, mackerel fillets, flakes of ham, green beans, and more.
Simply select the size of grocery bag you wish to donate, check-out and Vince’s Market will fulfill the order and ensure contactless delivery to the Newmarket Food Pantry.
Thank you for supporting our community!
Please note: We are unable to provide a tax receipt as we are not a registered charity. Upper Canada x Market & Co. are using our platform, in partnership with Vince’s Market, to facilitate this food drive in effort to help our community. Thank you for your understanding.
Do to the functionality of our website, tax is added. We are not collecting any tax, and the full amount charged is being put towards items for the Newmarket Food Pantry
Vince’s Market is temporarily closed inside Market & Co. but you can still visit the other four locations for your grocery needs. Vince’s Market offers contactless store pick-up available 7 days a week and home delivery service Monday through Friday.
Newmarket Food Pantry
The Newmarket Food Pantry was originally formed in 1988 when local churches came together to coordinate efforts and consolidate resources and support local families in need. The Food Pantry’s first location was in the basement of the Old Town Hall. At the beginning, the Food Pantry averaged 25 visits a week. The church congregations supported community food drives, food collection, and distribution. However, as economic conditions change, and the Newmarket population has increased over the past 30 years, the need has grown exponentially. The Food Pantry averages 400 visits a month and assists over 1,100 clients each month. More than 30% of our clients are under the age of 18.
