CLOSED MONDAYS: Brantford Food Bank
To Tuesday 30 June 2020 - 05:00pm
With the ongoing challenges of the COVID 19 outbreak, we are making the following adjustments to our services:
Brantford Food Bank Services at 1100 Clarence St. will be closed each Monday beginning Monday, March 30, 2020. This closure will assist the Food Bank to prepare for service, including cleaning, sorting food donations, and preparation of food kits for the rest of the week. Service will be open from Tuesday – Friday.
“With a reduced number of volunteers we need time for our staff team to prepare food kits and to ensure cleanliness in our food sorting and distribution areas,” says Heather Vanner, Executive Director.
The Food Bank continues to modify intake and food distribution processes to ensure social distancing and good hygiene practices. The Food Bank intake office and waiting area are open to one person at a time and food pickups at the Brantford Food Bank will be provided outside the food bank entrance. Individuals needing our emergency service are encouraged to dress accordingly. Beginning April 1st, Food Bank Services will be provided by appointment only. Anyone anticipating needing service at that time is encouraged to call 519-751-4357 ext. 225.
In-person services at our Community Employment Office at 230 Shellard Lane continue to be suspended until further notice. Service is being maintained through telephone and email services. Please contact our office at 519-751-4357 ext. 312, or email email@example.com if you need employment assistance. We can be reached Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4;30 pm.
The organization’s administrative office is closed to walk- ins. Individuals are encouraged to call 519-751-4357 for service enquiries, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Monetary donations can be made online at www.BrantfordFoodBank.ca.
The Brantford Food Bank continues to see a decrease in food donations. The organization encourages donors to make food donations at their local grocery stores whenever possible, or to make financial contributions online at www.BrantfordFoodBank.ca.
