The Importance of Food Drives

Thank you, in advance, for holding a food drive on our behalf.  We receive substantial weekly food donations from Daily Bread & Second Harvest, that allow us to meet a reasonable minimum base to provide food to our members.  

 

If we relied solely on those sources, we would be unable to provide the quantities of nutritious food we feel are sufficient to meet the needs of our members. As such, we work hard to develop and maintain partnerships with businesses and organizations and citizens to obtain additional supplies. 

Specific Food Needs

  • Fresh Produce

  • Dairy (ex. Milk, Yogurt) & Dairy Alternatives

  • Bread, Rice, Cereal, Pasta & Grains

  • Meat & Soy Products

  • Eggs

  • Beverages (ex. Coffee, Juice, Tea)

  • Canned Goods (ex. Soup, Beans)

Cleaning Supplies

Current Non-Food Needs

It is sometimes said that one person's scrap is another's gold. To keep our overhead costs low, we try to find donations of equipment to help with our work. If you have anything, please contact us and we can arrange for a pick up at your convenience.

  • Cleaning Supplies (Industrial or Domestic)

  • Office Supplies (ex. Pens, paper)

  • Packaging Materials (ex. Bags, boxes)

If there's anything else you'd like to donate to the Parkdale Community Food Bank that you might think we need, reach us at info@pcfb.ca and we'll respond as soon as possible.
