Pick up Curbside

It's easy to participate in the NMSA.   You'll need to make an online account at and all food must be ordered online.  

Please follow the directions on site - choose a pick up time, check out fully and get a confirmation email, and then arrive curbside and phone to let us know you are here.

No computer?  The wonderful team at the Barrie Public Libraries can get you on a machine and will help you get started.  Many support workers also help with this task too!

No mobile phone - just give us a call from home when you are leaving and confirm your pick up time. 

Open times vary

based on inventory levels - the online store is open most mornings by 9:30am.  Occasionally it is open overnight. 

Curbside Pick Up is by appointment only, once every 7 days.

CURBSIDE PICK UP IS MOVING TO DOOR #7 on the south side of the facility, effective May 8th, 2024.

To obtain a "curbside pick up slot", add a specific time and day of the week to your cart.  If there are no times left today, then we are out of appointments.  We are not able to provide delivery.

Typical curbside pick up times range from 

10:30am - 1:00pm 
Monday - Saturday


Remember to bring government issued ID with you.  Orders can only be picked up by the person ordering or their PSW/Caseworker with ID.

Wish to donate?

We welcome your support to make a different together!  Food Rescue is different than a food bank, because all our food is 'pre-consumer' - rescued directly from an inspected facility (producer, retailer) to ours. 

But we have a few other meaningful ways you can make an immediate contribution!  Click on any product to the right and purchase online now, directly from our supplier.  They will advise us of your purchase and we'll pick it up!

For support over $100, we'd love to connect you to Sarah at the Barrie Community Foundations, where all donations are invested to ensure they support our organization for the longest possible future ahead.
