Community Cupboard

A Community Cupboard is available at Quinte West City Hall.

The cupboard is available Monday to Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fridays 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the lobby of Quinte West City Hall, located at 7 Creswell Dr., Trenton.

Mobile Community Resource Unit (MCRU)

The MCRU will return for its second season in May of 2023.

The City of Quinte West is pleased to launch its third strategy from the new Community Safety & Well-being Plan – the Mobile Community Resource Unit (MCRU).

The MCRU provides free space on a rotational basis to local agencies and organizations that offer services related to mental health, addictions and housing – the priority issues outlined in the Plan.

This pilot project has received funding from the Province of Ontario and Kay Stafford Fund to operate over the next three years. Each year, the unit will be parked in different high-need areas of the municipality (determined by the number of police calls related to mental health or substance use).
