Update for all services – August 5, 2021

With the ongoing challenges of the COVID 19 outbreak, we have made the following adjustments to our services. For our safety and yours we are asking that everyone wears a mask and uses hand sanitizer when using our services or entering our building. Staff and volunteers do screening and temperature checks daily. We also screen all clients for Covid related symptoms by asking questions when booking or attending an appointment.

Brantford Food Bank Services:

The Brantford Food Bank is located at 1100 Clarence St and is closed on Mondays. This closure allows our staff and volunteers to prepare for the week. This includes cleaning, sorting food donations and preparation of food kits for the rest of the week. We are open Tuesday – Friday.

The Food Bank continues to modify intake and food distribution to ensure social distancing and good hygiene practices. We are running by appointment only. The Food Bank intake office is only open to 1 person at a time and we ask that you only arrive at your appointment time, if there is a client in the intake office we ask that you wait outside until they are finished. Food pickups will be provided outside the Food Bank entrance, please dress accordingly.
