Our mission is to provide nutritious food to the hungry of our community in a dignified and timely manner.
Since 1991 we have been serving the community of Burlington by providing food to those in need and to coordinate food and financial donations from Burlington individuals, corporations, churches, service groups and other organizations.
While most of our donations are non-perishable food items, Burlington Food Bank also supplies milk, eggs, meat, bread and fresh fruits and vegetables to our clients. 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.
