Food Access & Meal Guides


The emergency food cupboard at Onward Willow Neighbourhood Group can be accessed once per month by anyone living within our neighbourhood boundaries (please see our ‘About’ page for details). Please bring one piece of ID as proof of address and ID for any additional family members that have needs. We offer basics along with Cobs bread and buns and occasionally various types of meat. We also offer feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and occasionally diapers and other hygiene products depending on what’s at hand.

If you are located on the west side of the Hanlon Parkway, your neighbourhood group is Parkwood Gardens and is located inside the West End Rec Centre.

The Silvercreek Community Market offers free produce, bread, and non-perishables to neighbourhood folks every FIRST and THIRD Thursday of each month between 2pm-3pm. ID is required as proof of address. Please bring your own  sturdy bags. It is best to arrive a little early if you need to register and also to receive a number. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments are offered in a welcoming, friendly setting at All Saints Anglican & Lutheran Church. Access to the market is at the back of the building and around the north side (the Value Village side).
