Donate now through Canada Helps

Individual Donations

The Barrie Food Bank relies entirely on personal, private and company donations of both food and financial donations to succeed. We are a non-profit charitable organization who receives no financial support from any level of government. Your donation allows us to provide emergency food to those families and individuals in need. Last year we were able to assist 21,000 families and individuals of which 8,000 were children.

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at local grocery stores such as Zehrs, Costco, Sobey’s, No Frills, Metro, Food Basics, Foodland and Price Chopper.

Food and Financial donations can be made at the food bank located at 42 Anne Street South, Unit 2. Located off of Army Navy Air Force Drive, behind Pioneer Family Pools.

Drop-off donations can be made:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:30 to 3:30
Tuesday and Thursday 8:30 to 11:30am

In our new location we have a large walk-in refrigerator and freezer and can now accept some perishable foods such as frozen chicken, turkey, ground beef as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. These items must be dropped off at the food bank.
