What We Do...

Every month, over 750 people receive food from the Burlington Food Bank. In 2018 we provided food to over 8,500 Burlington residents; 40% of those assisted were children. We also assisted more than 15 other agencies in 2018

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
