How Can I Help?
There are a variety of ways to support Community Food Share in whichever capacity works best for you.
You can drop off food during office hours at our food banks in Morrisburg and Wincherster and our food cupboards in Finch and Crysler. Please contact us if you want to know if we have any specific needs or if you have any questions about food donations.
You can also drop off food donations at these stores:
Winchester – Winchester Foodland
Morrisburg – Laura’s Valu-Mart
Iroquois – Iroquois Foodland
Finch - D&D Market
Chesterville – Mike Dean’s Heritage Market
You can also contribute to food drives held through the year at local grocery stores and other businesses and community events. Some of the larger food drives in our community include Fill-a-Bag in May, Farm Credit Canada’s Drive Away Hunger campaign at local schools in October, the Christian Reformed Church Youth Group food drive on Halloween night and the CP Holiday Train stop at Finch in November. Watch our Facebook page and the local newspapers for news on upcoming food drives and other events in support of Community Food Share.
Interested in organizing your own food drive or fundraising event? Contact our Team Leader, for further details: firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-898-0781.

If you have fresh garden produce to spare, we can use it as long as the product is relatively clean. Our volunteers will also give it a good scrubbing just to be sure.
The Ontario Government introduced a 25% non-refundable Food Bank Donation Tax Credit for farmers who donate agricultural products to food banks. For more details contact Jane Schoones.
We are always looking for people to lend a hand.

While donations of food are very much appreciated, cash donations provide us with more flexibility when it comes to providing healthy food choices for our clients. We use cash donations to purchase perishable items such as milk, eggs, meat, cheese, fruit and vegetables. Cash donations also provide us with the necessary funds to deal with shortages of other items.
You can also make donations online at CanadaHelps.org
