School Supplies Program

Why a School Supplies Program?

  • Back to school may add significant financial pressures to an already tight budget, especially for low-income families
  • The School Supplies Program helps these families in the Orléans-Cumberland community with children and youth (from Kindergarten to Grade 12)
  • They are provided with all kinds of school supplies

Registration period: from June 1st to August 3, 2018


• Must be a resident of Orléans-Cumberland and a low-income family (See income chart)
• Must provide the following documents to register:
• Proof of ID for all members to the family
• Proof of address and income for each adult in the household (18 years +)

Registration will be done during food bank hours. Come in person. Please arrive an hour before closing times.
• Tuesday 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
