Food Bank

Please remember to share any extra food that you may find in your cupboards or gardens.  Food insecurity can be particularly challenging for many at any time of the  year and your donations are much appreciated. To all of you who donate on a regular basis, please accept our heartfelt appreciation from all of us at The Kitchen and HIES.

The Food Bank operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 to 12 noon all year. For twenty years the Hornby Island Coop has been a generous donor to both The Kitchen and Food Bank.

Natural History Centre Open

The Natural History Centre is open for spring! The Centre is located at the Hornby Community School and home to a wide ranging display focusing on the animals and geology of Hornby Island. Whether you are a child or an adult, you will find wild information and fun hands-on activities.

Spring hours are from 1–3:30pm Thursdays. Visitors can view the natural history displays, participate in fun activities, and tour the ethnobotanical garden. Stay tuned for the 2015 summer programming, including yearly speaker series and nature field trips.

Learn more at the Hornby Island Natural History Centre website.
