We have a new process in place to better maintain social distancing. When you arrive at The Compass, give your name to the volunteer at the front door then wait outside. When your name is called, step to the table just inside the door to the left, to pick up your bags.
To maintain good social distancing, please take care to leave 6 feet between you and others, then pick up your food and depart right away. Thanks and stay safe.

Our Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
With growing concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus locally and abroad, The Compass has had to consider a range of actions to respond in the best interests of our clients, volunteers and staff. Our considerations were grounded in the following guiding principles:
- Safeguard the health our clients, volunteers and staff.
- Continue as best we can to meet the needs of our clients for food supplies.
- Contribute to the broader efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.
What Clients & Volunteers Say
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff. You do a wonderful job in helping anyone in our community who truly struggles.
This is an absolutely incredible team!! The service they provide is so necessary, and definitely helps the community run smoother.
My 5 years as a volunteer with the Compass have been some of my happiest. I feel very privileged that in my role here, I have been allowed to get to know so many wonderful people. There are huge rewards too. The sense of fulfillment is amazing and the warmth and gratitude of the clients is priceless.
The kindest group of people you could ever meet volunteer at The Compass.
Most helpful community and outreach centre I had ever experienced.
Staff are amazing! They make you feel like a normal person and not someone who is struggling to get by. The staff make this place!
