About Us

Special Announcement:
We are experiencing unprecedented client numbers at the Food Basket which is affecting the wait time in line. With the warm weather upon us, we want to ensure all clients are safe while waiting outside.

Stay hydrated! Bring plenty of water in a refillable bottle.
Protect yourself from the sun. Wear sunscreen, a hat and/or bring an umbrella for additional shade.
Bring your own bags. This allows us to serve you faster and keeps the line moving.

St. James Food Basket is a market-style food bank supporting people in central Etobicoke.  We strive to provide a positive, relaxed environment where participants have the opportunity to sit, chat and share a cup of coffee, bowl of soup or whatever we have on hand.
