If you need emergency food support, we’re here to help. Our Food Bank is operating with modified services due to the pandemic. Please phone us for assistance at 905-835-1914.
Once you’ve become a member registered with of our food bank, you can visit once per month to shop for basics. You can pick up bread, fruits and vegetables every week when available.
During the school year, you can pick up a lunch kit every week for each school-age child, containing enough bread, sandwich items and other essentials to provide enough lunches for the week.
Please bring your ID and grocery bags with you. If you’re a first-time visitor, please bring ID for yourself and any dependants, a stub of proof of income, proof of rent and other bills.
