The Need in Burlington

This year we have seen an alarming 20% increase in the need for assistance from the Burlington Food Bank. As we continue to work towards supporting and feeding our neighbours in Burlington, we recognize the need for education around the issue of hunger.

We know we can, as the Burlington community rise to this new challenge. To learn more about our work and the impact we have in the community, read our 2021 Hunger Report.
