Neighbours Helping Neighbours Program (NXN)
Do you need the help of a neighbour ?  To make a pick up or just to talk on the phone? 

Are you available to help a neighbour?

Residents who are following the recommendations to stay at home and need help OR residents who would like to volunteer as a helping neighbour please click the link below to fill out our online form OR phone 778-762-1274 for help completing the form. 


Those who need help will be matched with someone who can help within 24- 48 hours. Those who volunteer help will be contacted as needed.


Volunteers wishing to be part of Neighbours Helping Neighbours must already have a criminal record check- either from PHC or from another volunteer agency on Gabriola. If you want to help and don’t have a current criminal record check, please follow the steps below to fast-track your application. You can then register to be a helping neighbour at the link below.

Food Programs

Food Bank Grocery Program:

Pick-up Tuesdays between 10am-2pm OUTSIDE, on the side of the PHC building facing the gardens.

Groceries will be prepacked, and your name will be checked off a list rather than the usual 'selection list'. If you cannot make that time, please contact the Food Program Coordinator to make alternative arrangements at or 250-247-7322.

 If you are in quarantine or social-distancing (because of vulnerable health concerns) we can arrange a drop off by contacting the Food Program Coordinator.

*Updated* Soup Socials:
Meals are available to pick up 'to go' on Tuesdays ONLY now. Mondays and Fridays are cancelled.

*Updated* Food Recovery Pick-Up:
Food Recovery pickups are cancelled, except for the food recovery that will be sorted on Mon/Tues and go out in groceries.



Seniors' Programs

All seniors' programs are closed.  This includes peer led exercise, the monthly luncheon, New Age of Aging, and the seniors' activity day program, Stepping Up Stepping Out.


The Home Hospice, friendly visiting, and Caregiver support programs are currently continuing.
