Welcome to Newark Neighbours
Our mission: Serving our Community with Compassion, Care and Concern
Our vision: That no resident in Niagara-on-the-Lake need be hungry
Newark Neighbours is the only food bank and thrift store serving Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
It has operated since 1971.
Newark Neighbours is a registered not-for-profit organization with an elected Board of Directors and entirely volunteer staff.
We don't receive financial support from any level of government, and our continued operations rely solely on donations received and sales from our thrift store.
Many people are surprised to learn that there are people in Niagara-on-the-Lake who rely on the services of our food bank to increase their food security. Yet, after 50 years of service, Newark Neighbours is still a vital service in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
All our food bank clients must be residents of the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, whose boundaries include the Old Town, Virgil, Niagara on the Green, St. David’s, Queenston, and everywhere in between.
Thanks to donations to the food bank and the thrift store, we're able to offer registered clients a selection of groceries every two weeks, plus special holiday meals. We also provide limited food supply support to other local food banks (if possible), manage a bursary program for local students and provide support to Red Roof Retreat in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Newark Neighbours Thrift Shop sells donated clothing and footwear for women, men and children, as well as jewelry, accessories, household items, small appliances, collectibles and more.
Anyone may shop at the Store . Visit us for a browse...you never know what you may find!
