S7ílhen Food Pantry
Food Coordinator: Tannis Louie
S7ílhen is an emergency pantry which facilitates access to nutritious food for Nation Members experiencing an emergency food need. The team believes that nobody should ever go hungry. The pantry is open two to three days per week and is stocked with basic perishable and non-perishable foods and personal hygiene supplies. Please contact the team using the information above to complete an intake.
Part of our Sḵwx̱wú7mesh values is to enjoy a meal together. Monthly food sharing consists of a meal package that any Nation Member can come and pick up. This is not organized for emergency purposes. Information about each month’s food package (date, delivery and pick-up locations and times) is shared on social media and in the Nation’s on-reserve newsletters.
