Southern Frontenac Community Service's Food Bank is run by a dedicated group of 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
Our on-site greenhouse and expanded community garden provide fresh, organic produce from April-November to an average of 50 families each month. All the planting, weeding, and harvesting is done by an amazing group of green-thumbed volunteers.
Southern Frontenac Community Services is part of the Feed Ontario network and benefit from potential corporate donations, and grant opportunities offered through them.
Donations of food or cash are always appreciated. Items most in need include: children's snacks, peanut butter, canned meats and fish, pork and beans, pasta sauce, canned stew and chili, soda crackers, mac and cheese, and juice.
Please call ahead if you would like to donate perishable items such as fruit, vegetables, butter or margarine, milk or frozen meals - we have some fridge and freezer space available.
Monetary donations help us purchase perishable items for the hampers each week.
Hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent and cleaning supplies are also appreciated.
Southern Frontenac Community Services has a goal to reduce hunger and break the cycle of poverty through education and offering nutritious food to our food bank clients.
Thank you for all of your community support.
