Barrie Food Bank Spring Food Drive

April 1 - April 30

The Barrie Food Bank’s Spring Food Drive kicks off April 1st.
The shelves at the Barrie Food Bank are depleted after a challenging winter. They are now serving about 2600 individuals each month, of which 900 are kids. First-time clients are up 91% over the previous year as more people struggle with the increased costs for housing, gas, and food.
The Goal is to raise $100,000 and 100,000 pounds of food by the end of April 2022.
We need your help to replenish our shelves, as we are expecting a busy spring and summer. Every contribution makes a difference. Financial donations allow us to purchase produce, dairy and meat and replenish staples as we need them.
With your help we are working towards a community where no one is hungry!
Most Needed Food Items:
  • Canned tomatoes
  • pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • peanut butter
  • canned tuna, ham and chicken
  • soups/stews
  • school snacks such as granola bars, puddings, and fruit cups
  • canned vegetables
  • canned fruit
  • oatmeal packs (breakfast size)
  • cereal
  • personal hygiene items such as: body wash, shampoo, toothpaste, tampons, and pads
