This is a message for people who use or would like to use the food bank, and for donors, here they are:
Greetings fellow Penderites! Greetings from the Food Bank where “Friday is the new Wednesday”. For a number of reasons, we will now be open Fridays from 10:00 to noon. We have been entrusted by our community to help those who are finding these times tough. Thanks to all donors...we are approaching 100 of you! Humbling!
We know it is hard to start using the Food Bank and we promise to treat you with respect. After you register on a Friday morning, the foods you order will be delivered weekly to your home. Thanks to all the spectacular workers who are helping this rollout happen each does take an army.

We now have lots of egg cartons but could use frozen fruit and 1 cup (small) mason jars for jam making. Please bring these on a Friday morning between 10:00 and noon. Fridays are the new drop off days.
We are so fortunate to live on Pender Island... thanks to everyone for helping us care for each other!

We had 65 clients this past week at the Food Bank. All were given heaps of veggies, fresh homemade bread, special pork treats (like bacon or a roast) and even a hot cross bun. 

Call the church number 629-3634 for Wednesday mornings only. To answer questions Barb@629-6052 or Donna @629-3970. 


Medical Clinic, Mon – Fri 9am-12noon; 2pm – 5pm, Call 250-629-3233 (emergency dial 911)

We ask you to call first before coming, and when you arrive, ring the doorbell at the main entrance (clearly marked) and wait. The MOA’s will come and get you right away. IF more than one person is here to be seen, we will ask one to wait in their car. The MOA’s will come out to get you. We do want to take care of you, so do not shy away from calling us. OF course, if there is an emergency, call 911.

(250) 629 3455

We have heavily modified our hours and access as follows:


Mon-Fri 8-12

Sat 9-1

Sun Closed

New checkout procedures in an effort to reduce wait times!

Wonderful people of Pender! This is our last change for a while, I promise you that! Thank you so much for helping us through this very difficult time.

We now have two lanes that head for checkout! One is for contractor/trades as well as those who have already gotten their lumberyard items including propane but do not need additional shopping from inside.

The regular one is for anyone that needs us to ‘shop for things’ and requires additional time! We hope this will help people get in and out as quickly as possible and make for safer lineups as they are now not in the middle of the parking lot!

These lanes are clearly marked!

We are rarely able to answer calls while we’re open. Please call the store and leave your name and # only. We will call back as soon as we can and get a shopping list from you.

If you need items same day, please come down during the open hours and we will get your order ready as soon as we can while your there! It has been getting faster and more refined as we work our way through these learning times.

If you need anything from the lumberyard including propane, please go there first. Talk to one of our yard staff and they will let you in when it is safe to do so. We will write up a yardslip for your items and we’ll bring it inside to the cashier. Then please get into the line out front and you will be helped as soon as you get to the front of the line or sooner if possible.

We have been mixing lots of paint! It’s a great thing to do to keep busy. If we can we will mix it on the spot but when its really busy or if it’s a bit of a tricky tint, we may need to take your order and call you when it is done. Usually this is same day or next day.

We are getting all our beautiful hanging baskets, geraniums and specialty items in soon. We would love to get preorders in for anything your looking for so that we can make sure to satisfy orders in one pickup!Our island grown tomatoes will also be in soon. Lots of basket stuffers are here already as well as lots of deer resistant perennials.

Seed potatoes are sold out sorry

Special Ordering: We love to special order for you! Please call the store and leave your name, # and let us know that you need a special order. We do prefer this to having you order online at the website. Online has a few implications so a quick call to our store 250-629-3455 and we can look up items, see if we have those items in-store first and if not we can order them and look after everything for you.

We are still very well stocked with soil, seeds, seeding trays, pots and tools. We are receiving our Home Hardware orders regularly thanks to all our truck drivers and wonder staff 

Take care of yourself and help a neighbor during these times

We hope that by opening an hour earlier and staying open an hour later we can reduce your wait time and reduce the amount of traffic at the depot.

Please remember that the following two actions will make recycling better for everyone during Covid-19:

1. Pre-sorting: this drastically reduces the amount of time needed to recycle.
2. Stock pile your recycling. Yes, this is one area that you are being asked to stockpile (just a little). If you normally make 4 trips/month to the depot, try coming in only once or twice. This will reduce vehicle traffic and take some of the strain off our reduced capacity.

​Please DO NOT come to the depot if:
· you have been travelling in the last fourteen days
· have any symptoms of Covid-19 including fever, shortness of breath, or a cough
· If you are vulnerable to Covid-19 due to age or an underlying health condition (if this is the case, please hang on to your recycling until Covid passes so that you can remain safe).

NOTE - There will be no handling of recyclables by any of the staff.

Respect social distancing of 2 m between yourself and depot staff members.


Our heartfelt apologies to those with mobility issues, we are unable to assist you with your recycling at this time. If you are unable to deposit your recycling into the collection containers yourself, we ask that you keep it at home for the time being.

We suggest that you clean your recycling well, place it in large garbage bags, and store it in a secure outdoor location on your property until we can resume our normal operation.

This is for your own safety as well as for the safety of the staff.


1. Try to store your recycling at home for longer than you usually do so that you can reduce the number of trips to the depot.
2. Pre-sort your recyclables at home in order to minimize your time at the depot. This will help other recyclers who are patiently waiting for their turn  :)
We suggest the following categories:
glass packaging; steel and aluminum; paper and cardboard; crinkly plastic; soft plastic bags; plastic containers; styrofoam; milk/soup cartons/coffee cups; and refundables).
We are once again accepting paint, batteries, light bulbs, small appliances and large appliances, as well as non-packaging plastic. Please phone ahead if you have large quantities to check whether we are able to accept them (it depends on how busy it is at the depot).
3. Only two cars may recycle at a time, the staff will direct you when it is your turn.
4. Wear disposable gloves while recycling at the depot.
5. DO NOT handle any recycling other than your own while at the depot.
6. All collection containers have been moved out of doors. Recycling can be placed directly into the megabags on the pallets. Staff will show you where the recyclables go.

Thank you for your patience! By following these guidelines we hope that we may be able to continue to serve you.

With warmth,
PIRS staff and board
