Food and Clothing Cupboard

YES provides an emergency food cupboard for any youth or families who have previously resided at YES. We could not offer this without significant help from Kawartha Food Share, community donors and volunteers.

Individuals who are eligible to use the food cupboard can receive a supply of food once per month.

The food cupboard is open Tuesday, and Thursday noon-3pm and Saturdays noon-2pm.

To find additional food banks or free meals in the community, please visit the Peterborough Food Calendar.

Interested in donating food to the shelter?

Because we feed our shelter clients three meals/day, and offer food boxes to those in need, we always gladly accept food donations. Non-perishables, meeting left-overs, and ready-made-meals are always accepted at YES.

YES also provides access to a clothing cupboard for any youth or families who have resided at YES. 

The clothing cupboard provides youth and families with access to seasonally appropriate clothing options, outerwear, clothing for job interviews, baby clothes, shoes, socks/underwear, and swimwear.
