How does "Box-It-Forward" work?
We're glad you asked! With the huge savings that you get from the PA Food Box program, you now have the option to pay it forward by purchasing a food box to help nourish the women and their children in crisis as well as the men and youth who are in transition to independence thru the YWCA Prince Albert homeless shelters and various other programs. This option is available when you place your order.
I don't reside at any of the YWCA shelters but I can't afford to buy a food box - do I qualify for a free box?
Absolutely :) Please fill out the form below. We will give you a call when we have donated food boxes available. For now, please speak to your agency if you qualify for social assistance. They may be able to purchase the box on your behalf. You get more food for your money than what you'll get at the grocery store!
When will the donated food boxes be available?
Food boxes are prepared every second Wednesday. Depending on the number of donated boxes and the number of people we have on the list, we may not be able to provide a food box for everyone right away. We will give you a call when we have donated food boxes available and where to pick up your box. Thank you for being patient!
