Growing Food

Donations of freshly grown fruits, vegetables and herbs are an incredible way to show your neighbours in need that they matter. There are a few different ways to get involved in this summer and help grow food for our community. Scroll down to find out more.

Volunteer in Our Community Garden

Volunteering in the Burlington Food Bank Community Gardens is an inclusive and empowering experience that invites individuals of all skill levels to come together and make a tangible difference in the lives of our neighbours. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or have never touched soil before, there is a place for you as we work side by side allowing us to produce an abundance of fresh, nutritious produce that directly supports those facing food insecurity.

Help to Grow-A-Row

The Burlington Food Bank’s Grow-A-Row initiative is an incredible effort that helps to ensure that our neighbours in Burlington have access to fresh, healthy and locally grown produce. This initiative brings together home and community gardeners who volunteer to grow an extra row of fruits and vegetables in their gardens, specifically for donation to the Burlington Food Bank.

Bunchberry Connections

A Burlington Food Bank Growing Partner

Bunchberry Connection’s urban farm has successfully cultivated and harvested over 1,000 lbs of fresh and healthy food for the Burlington Food Bank, providing nourishment to our neighbours in need. This incredible achievement would not have been possible without the support of volunteers who selflessly contribute their time and energy. Bunchberry Connections is actively seeking individuals who are passionate about making a difference to join their team of volunteers.
