Sources Langley Food Bank ready to reopen

Langley food bank will begin distributing food and services again on Wednesday, May 22

The Sources Langley Food Bank is ready to re-open to clients at their new location next week.

The address is Unit 208, 20445 62nd Ave.. The first distribution day for clients will be Wednesday, May 22.

Regular Distribution Hours will be Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Donations can be made onsite, Mondays-Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“Our team has been working hard over the past month to get everything ready for our re-opening,” said Denise Darrell, Executive Director of Community Services at SOURCES. “We are very grateful to be able to continue serving the hundreds of people that rely on us to feed themselves and their families.”

The Sources Langley Food Bank has been in the community for over four years.

The organization discovered at the end of January that the property where it operated had been sold, and the food bank had be out by the end of April.

An urgent search for a new home began, and “with ardent support from the community,” said Darrell, a new space was found in late March.

The Sources Langley Food Bank is a program of Sources Community Resources Society.

Beyond food distribution, the Sources Langley Food Bank has an advocate on site to assist people with housing, income supports, mental health, and more.

Their clientele includes children, adults, seniors, refugees, newcomers, and other citizens of Langley City and Langley Township, including Aldergrove.
