SFCSC'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. Last year 2015, the expanded garden and greenhouse provided fresh, organic produce from April-November to over 50 families a month, over 40% of that number were children. (An average of over 60 children each month).
Ontario Association of Food Banks
SFCSC is now a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks. Membership means SFCSC will adhere to nutritional guidelines, and will benefit from any potential corporate donations, and grant opportunities offered through the network.
Katherine Schmidt Executive Director of Food Banks Canada has stated, "Hunger saps you physically and emotionally, particularly if you don't know where your next meal is coming from. It has negative long term health impacts, and prevents Canadians from contributing to their full potential”.
Donations of food or cash are always appreciated. Items most in need include: cereal, chunky soup, peanut butter, canned meats & 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.
SFCSC's goal is 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.
