What We Do...

In the first quarter of 2018, we provided food to 1,740 Burlington residents. That's up 10% over the same period last year. We receive, inspect for expiry dates, sort, and distribute food as quickly as possible. We also support other food banks in the area.

While most of our donations are non-perishable food items, Burlington Food Bank also supplies milk, eggs, meat and fresh fruits and vegetables to clients when available. Food is sourced through corporate and individual donations, sponsorships, and through our collaborative membership with the Ontario Association of Food Banks, and Food Banks Canada
