Food Donations

The Garden Collective has always been committed to enhancing food security in Yellowknife. Gardeners are obligated to dedicate 25% of their plot to grow food that is donated to local organisations that serve individuals in need.  

Each gardener is responsible to weigh and record all donations. Plot donations are tracked. 

Below is a list of some of the organisations that receive donations. If some of your donated produce goes to individuals or families outside of those organizations listed as registered charities then record your donation as 'other' when registering a food donation.
  • Aven Manor, 5710, 50th Street, drop donations at their kitchen between 7am and 5pm. Can handle large quantities.
  • Lynn's Place, 5015 54 Street, Drop donations weekdays 7 am - 7 pm; most appreciated later in the week.
