Helping Hand Food Bank works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations to address the complex challenges of food insecurity that many of our family and neighbours are experiencing. Our partners contribute more than money. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more are helping build stronger communities.
Thank you to the Frank H. Hori Charitable Foundation for their generous donations of $5000.00 to assist us in purchasing necessary food supplies to support those in need.
We are so grateful to Walmart and the community of Tillsonburg for their support through the Walmart Fight Hunger Spark Change Campaign Fund that took place earlier this year. Your contributions through Walmart makes a big difference in being able to supply people who have food insecurity with what they need to survive. THANK YOU!
A Message about our Local Grocery Stores
We Simply want to say THANK YOU!
The Helping Hand Food Bank is a member of Food Bank Canada. Food Bank Canada has a program that focuses on Sharing food at the community level.
It pairs participating locations of national retailers with local community food banks across the country to provide safe, quality food including: fresh, frozen, non-perishable foods, and consumer goods.
The program not only helps to ensure that food banks across Canada receive a regular, ongoing supply of essential items, but also helps reduce the cost of food waste experienced by retailers.
In a typical year, the Retail Food Program provides local food banks with over 13 million lbs. (over 5 million kg) of food. This food is weekly donated to us by Metro, Sobeys, Walmart and Zehrs. Without their support we would not have the extras to put into our food services.
Our relationship with the local vendors and their employees through the retail food program is what allows us to continue to offer such a great service. This networking enables the Helping Food Bank provide quality food to each and every person who comes through our door.
For this generosity, the Helping Food Bank simply wants to say THANK YOU!
