A Message for those using our Service
During the COVID 19 pandemic the Barrie Food Bank is offering pre-packaged grocery hampers on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons between 1:00pm and 3:30pm. We ask people to practice social distancing, wear a mask and to not line up ahead of time for the grocery program.
We have introduced an expedited process for the safety and well-being of our clients, volunteers and staff which takes less than 5 minutes.
Please ensure that you bring the following information with you Identification for yourself with your birthdate and something with your current address on it – your drivers licence, a utility bill or a rent receipt.
While these are our plans today, our staff will be monitoring the overall Covid 19 situation daily to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
A Message to our Donors
THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT!
With 2020 behind us, we move into a new year of hope, of planning and of serving those in need of our services. 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 of uncertainty, without the generous donations of our community we could not provide groceries to over 850 households each month 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 all know we still have a long way to go in dealing with this global pandemic and we all need to follow the right protocols to keep everyone safe and healthy. Thank you for doing your part and thank you for caring for others.
We do expect that the usage of the Barrie Food Bank will continue to climb over the next few months, if you would like to provide your support we would encourage you to stay safe, stay home and make an online donation on our website at www.barriefoodbank.org 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.
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.
