Community Support

Southern Frontenac Community Service's Food Bank is run by a dedicated group of over 20 hardworking volunteers. It relies on donations from local churches, schools, organizations, and the general public. We receive no government funding, and rely entirely on personal and corporate donations. 

 

Grace Community Garden

Two major grants in 2013 enabled us to build a greenhouse and expand our community garden.  The expanded garden and greenhouse provides fresh, organic produce from April-November to over 50 families a month, over 40% of that number are children. (An average over 60 children each month).

 

Ontario Association of Food Banks

Southern Frontenac Community Services is a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks. Membership means that we adhere to nutritional guidelines, and will benefit from any potential corporate donations, and grant opportunities offered through the network.

Donations

Donations of food or cash are always appreciated. Items most in need include: cereal, chunky soup, peanut butter, canned meats and fish, pork and beans, pasta sauce, canned stew and chili, soda crackers, mac and cheese, and juice. Monetary donations for perishable items such as milk, fruit and vegetables are always welcome.

 

Southern Frontenac Community Services has a goal to reduce hunger and break the cycle of poverty through education and offering more nutritious food to our food bank clients.

 

Thank you for all of your community support.
