The number of people needing to use the food bank has continued to run at the same level for the past few years. If you need information on making donations plese call the food bank at 519-853-0457.
During the pandemic precautionary period, we are asking anyone who wishes to contribute financially to provide food items instead of cash if possible. While we sincerely appreciate the support, in these current times it has become increasingly challenging to source food.
We are not able to receive etransfer donations.
If you are interested in providing a financial contribution, please forward cheques to:
PO Box 74
You can also attend our location on Tuesday between 8:30-11:40/12:30-2:30 to drop off funds.
