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
We simply want to say THANK YOU!
The year 2020 is a year that will go down into the history books as an unprecedented year of uncertainty, of change and of challenge for everyone in the world. It is a year we will remember for a long time. The Barrie Food Bank has changed our processes, we have cancelled events, adapted to how we serve our clients and how we work with our volunteers and donors. However, one thing that has NOT changed is the generosity and caring hearts from our community.
The annual Christmas Holiday Food Drive will be completely different from any other year; we are NOT asking for food donations and we have no financial goal set; we simply want to say THANK YOU. Over the past 9 months we have cancelled our traditional food drives and encouraged the community to make financial contributions. Individuals, businesses, schools, churches and service organizations have overwhelmingly answered the call. The generosity goes far beyond our expectations and allows us to purchase the food needed to keep our shelves stocked and to put food on the tables of over 800 households each month. For this generosity, the Barrie Food Bank simply wants to say THANK YOU!
THANK YOU FOR CARING
THANK YOU FOR SHARING
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIVING SPIRIT
THANK YOU FOR STANDING BESIDE US
THANK YOU FOR MAKING SURE WE WERE OKAY
THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF SO MANY
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.

Public Service Announcement
Spring is here and under normal circumstances we would be launching our Easter Food Drive to replenish the shelves of the Barrie Food Bank. However, as we are all aware this is not a normal spring, today we are faced with a global pandemic of COVID-19 and we are being asked to protect ourselves…
During the COVID 19 crisis the Barrie Food Bank has closed its Morning Drop In program for the immediate future. It is our hope to continue to provide groceries during our Afternoon Grocery Program.
