The Samaritan House Ministries Resource Centre offers a number of programs to provide food, training, care, and teaching to clients.
Food Hamper Program
The Samaritan House Ministries Food Bank is Manitoba's second largest food bank, distributing between 60 - 80 food hampers per day! This number is steadily rising and Samaritan House Ministries is dedicated to providing healthy food for struggling individuals and families in our community.
FACTS ABOUT FOOD
Nearly 50% of our clients are children.
Roughly 20,000 hampers are distributed per year.
We need more than 147,000 pounds of food each year to provide for our clients' basic food needs.
