Our programming offers help to anyone requiring food assistance. It’s not a hand out – it’s a hand up, helping Newfoundland families and individuals move forward in life. Our clients are your neighbours, co-workers, and friends. That’s why at Bridges to Hope our focus is “neighbours feeding neighbours.”

Target Population:

Bridges to Hope serves anyone requiring food assistance on the Northeast Avalon.

Highlights of Programs/Services Offered:

Food Pantry:

Clients can access one full hamper and one emergency hamper per month. The full food hamper includes fresh baked bread, homemade soups and stews prepared in our community kitchen, plus other essential food items required to feed a family or an individual for up to five days. Our emergency hamper is designed to last 24 to 36 hours. 

Bag to School:

Bridges to Hope supports students in our community through an education outreach program called “Bag to School.” The program provides K-12 and post-secondary students with quality, curriculum-based school supplies, all packaged in a backpack and ready to go. Registration for the program occurs annually in July. For more information, please visit our website

Christmas Hampers:

Every year in December Bridges to Hope distributes an average of 300 Christmas Hampers in the community. Registration occurs annually in November. For more information, please visit our website.
