Community Support

Southern Frontenac Community Service's Food Bank relies on donations from local churches, schools, organizations, and the general public. Service is provided primarily by dedicated volunteers. If you would like to help out, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.

 

Grace Community Garden

Our on-site greenhouse and community garden provide fresh, organic produce from April-November to families each month. All the planting, weeding, and harvesting is done by an amazing group of green-thumbed volunteers.
