About Us

The Acton Foodshare was started in 1991 by group of concerned citizens led by Joan Waldie who passed away in November 2011. The Foodshare exists as a service  to contribute to the alleviation of hunger and the prevention of malnutrition for those individuals who are temporarily in need of  assistance. The foodbank is intended as a  discreet and non-threatening way to access food for those in need. The Acton Foodshare is a member of the Feed Ontario and is run by a volunteer board of directors who are appointed at the Annual General Meeting in May of each year. Daily operations are run by a group of dedicated volunteers.
