Life is challenging enough, imagine facing it on an empty stomach or with the added stress of wondering how you are going to put your next meal on the table. We are here to help.
As Spring approaches and our shelves start to get depleted we are getting ready for a Spring Food Drive!
As part of this initiative our Food Manager has prepared an Amazon Wish List with some of our most needed items.

The Orangeville Food Bank (OFB) was founded in 1992 and the founders are still part of the volunteering team today.
Thanks to ongoing Community run fundraisers and the generosity of our donors, we manage to keep our shelves stocked.

There are many ways to get involved and help the Orangeville Food Bank. Every event and every hour spent in the Food Bank helps us tremendously.
4 million Canadians are food insecure and struggle to put enough food on the table. Every day they face tough decisions about how to make ends meet.
Food of the Month
“I only used the foodbank twice and never intended to depend on it as a regular thing. It was a serious test of my self-esteem. I learned wonderful lessons in humility, empathy and gratitude.”
– Previous client, Foodbank volunteer
“I have had a very good experience with the Orangeville Food Bank, who has just started a pilot program in my building, because the number of seniors were increasing at the food bank. The response has been phenomenal. People line up, and are excited to see fresh pears, grapes, and frozen dinners that were prepared by the local high school.
They work hard to accommodate the seniors and their special diets.“
– Ann, A local senior
