Marymound is opening a community pantry in Thompson, and we’d appreciate your help!

Many of us feel the pinch this holiday season with increasing food costs, but food insecurity is an ongoing issue for northern communities, made significantly worse by inflation. Our hope with opening the community pantry is to ease some of that burden for northern families during the holiday season and beyond.

We are looking for donations of non-perishable food items so we can keep our pantry fully stocked. We are looking for items such as:
Canned Meats
Canned Tuna and Salmon
Peanut Butter
Jelly (no glass)
Canned or Dry Soups
Canned Stews and Chili
Tea Bags
Coffee (ground no beans)
Canned Pasta
Canned Vegetables
Canned Fruit
Canned Pasta (Spaghetti “O’s”)
Hot and Cold Cereals
Cake Mixes
Pancake Mix
Powdered Milk
Packaged Pasta (Macaroni & Cheese, etc.)
Juice Boxes
Canned Juices
Canned Beans
Canned Gravy
Granulated Sugar
Baby Food & Cereal
Baby Formula (Enfamil/Similac)
Granola Bars
Cereal Bars
Household cleaners
Toilet Paper
Paper towel

Donations of non-perishable food items can be dropped off at 117A Commercial Place in Thompson, Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

In Winnipeg, donations can be brought to Marymound’s Scotia Street Campus at 442 Scotia Street, Monday to Friday, between 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We will take care of getting these items to the north!

Please note that we cannot accept donation drop-offs outside the hours stated here.

If you can’t drop off an item in person, please consider making a financial donation:
