It could happen to any of us... Many people in our community live with just enough money to make it through the month, having to choose between buying groceries or paying the rent.
Providing Support
There are many life circumstances that can leave a person or family struggling financially. Community Resource Service Food Bank & Distribution provides support to both individuals needing food, and to community-based programs that support those needing food security.

Individuals and families needing help could be

  • Seniors
  • Youth
  • Homeless
  • Working two jobs to get by
  • Disabled
  • Newcomers to our community
  • Working mothers & fathers, struggling with circumstances that have left them in a situation in which they have to ask for help

How to Receive
No appointment is necessary. The Food Bank is open to anyone in need.

Where do I go?
Go to our location at
1100 Clarence St. and register in Suite 102.

We provide support Monday to Friday, from 1:00 to 3:45 p.m.

When you come to the Food Bank, you will receive an intake form to be completed. You will meet privately with a volunteer to review your form and registration, and to ensure that you will get help. Please bring a piece of identification with you for each member of your household.

What will I receive?
You will receive a two- to three-day supply of items based on donations to the agency. With these items, we will attempt to follow the Canadian Food Guide.

Additional Programs

Income Tax Clinic

The Income Tax Clinic program is designed to assist low income households. This service is offered by Community Resource Service and Millard, Rouse & Rosebrugh LLP, in partnership with The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario. The clinics run by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, eligible participants may contact Community Resource Service beginning February 1.

Stuff a Backpack

The Stuff a Backpack program is offered to Food Bank clients unable to afford new school supplies for their children. As the number of Food Bank clients continues to grow, so does the need for this program. We are extremely grateful for the generosity and support of Lynden Park Mall, its tenants, Brant United Way and the community. With their help, we are able to share the costs of purchasing backpacks and the essential school supplies that we fill them with. Families can register a maximum of 2 children per family. Registration for the program is limited to 250 children and begins on July 2.
