A Message to our Donors

THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT!

First, I want to say thank you for the amazing support so many of you have shown to the Barrie Food Bank during this past year. Without the generous donations of our community, we could not provide groceries each month to over 1175 households in Barrie and surrounding communities. We are so proud to say that the Barrie Food Bank is a “community food bank”, 100% supported by our community, Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many women, men and children!

We do expect that the usage of the Barrie Food Bank will continue to remain high over the next year as there is an affordable housing crisis in Barrie and cost of living continues to rise. If you would like to provide support, go to our DONATE NOW  or Get Involved for volunteer opportunities.  Thank you!

The Barrie Food Bank is so appreciative of the generosity of our community, which has allowed us to continue to feed those families and individuals in need throughout this pandemic.

Thank you

Working towards a community where no one is hungry

The Barrie Food Bank’s mission is: to provide temporary food relief to individuals and families of our community who are in need, and to serve as a resource to guide them along the road to self sufficiency. Our policies are designed to achieve this mandate. To this end we seek to encourage self-sufficiency. In our service 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.
