Working towards a Community Where No One Is Hungry

The Barrie Food Bank’s mission is to provide food relief at no cost to individuals and families of our community who are in need, and to support them on their journey towards well-being. Our policies are designed to achieve this mandate. Of those who come to us for assistance, we strive to demonstrate compassion and respect for their dignity, and to serve as a source of encouragement.

NEWS

MAY 2024 – We are proud to announce that we have received accreditation from the Food Banks Canada Standards of Excellence program, the first food bank in Ontario to earn this accredation!

This program sets the foundation for a stronger and more agile food banking system, which means we can provide even better service to those in need. It also offers an opportunity for us to learn and innovate together, challenging the status quo and making a greater collective impact on food insecurity across Canada.
