The Good Shepherd Venture Centre is a dignified, efficient and safe space where emergency food and clothing is easily accessible for clients. Unlike most emergency food programs, our clients choose what they want from the available items in our Marketplace. With the help of staff and volunteers, they push a grocery cart and shop the aisles for food, clothing and personal items.
If you need need to use our services, please call us at 905-972-9485 or visit in person and we will help you register for the program. Grocery and program hours are Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. Doors open at 8:30 a.m.
