Food Bank

The Brantford Food Bank offers an Emergency Food Bank Service to individuals and families in Brantford, Brant County and Six Nations. This includes low-income families, children, the elderly, abuse survivors and the homeless. We also provide a Food Distribution Service to 23 other food and meal providers in our community. We believe that every person should have nutritious food and balanced meals.

We operate solely on donations and grants. Your generosity enables us to provide food to over 1,020 households who turn to our organization each month, as well as additional people who use other local food programs that we support.

When we pass on a simple box of food, we are privileged to witness the gratitude and hope in the eyes of the people we help. Because of you, a single parent can feed their children tonight, a senior has food in their cupboard for breakfast tomorrow, and a youth living on the street has nutritious food in their stomach.

Thank you for supporting our commitment to our community and the people in it. It is because of you, that we can continue to provide, not only food, but hope and support to our neighbours through difficult times.
