Are you in need of an Emergency Food Hamper?

If you are in a difficult situation and need food urgently, we are here to help you!

Food hampers typically contain a variety of non-perishable items, and the quantity is based on number of family members food is requested for.

Call us to request an emergency food hamper at (204) 669-0750 while supplies last!

Supported by Assiniboine Credit Union and its members.
