The Burlington Food Bank has seen an increase in the number of families we serve and we have noticed that the intake calls have been lasting much longer than at the beginning of the pandemic! When we hear from clients via email they are adding more detail in regards to how they are feeling and the struggles they are facing. We realize that people are worried right now about a lot of things and we take the time to talk to them and hear about their situations and how they are affected.
If you have a neighbour or family member that is alone please take the time to see how they are doing and ask if you can help them out in any way. If it’s a neighbour you haven’t seen in quite a while, maybe drop a note under their door to let them know there are people that care about them and how they are doing. We are all in this together and facebook groups like #burlingtontogether are reaching out to offer a hand in any way possible. Please wear masks and respect others safety if you are out in busy areas.
The Food Bank is here to help clients out with not just groceries but to be a small source of community and a connector to other community resources
