Update on Foodbank.jpeg

We are in need of more donations. We are providing for more people every week.

Please note the following:

Donations come to rear door at 131B Rolph St.

Food assistance is provided at middle door with long sidewalk.


Food service is provided on Wednesdays only by appointments. Appointments are from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.  These are booked at least 2 weeks ahead of time. 


Call on Tuesday mornings from 9 am - 11 am for an appointment: 519-688-3434 EXT 201.  Or you can book via email:

For those who need food services, when you miss your appointment and do not call, then someone else doesn't get the chance to be assisted due to our intake workers waiting for you. 


PLEASE don't miss YOUR appointment.
