A Message to our Donors


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 1525 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, and supports them on their journey towards well-being.

Thank you
Sharon Palmer
Executive Director

In our service hours, 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.
