We have already seen a 23% increase in food bank use this week and we expect that number to only increase in the next weeks and months as jobs and businesses are affected by the COVID 19 crisis. If you are able to, please donate to make sure we can keep up with the demand and make sure that no one is left hungry or forgotten in Welland.

more single parent families with children received groceries
more families with 3 or more people received groceries
more people received personal care items
We haven't forgotten about the local businesses, many of whom support us on a regular basis and have been supporting us even now while they are struggling themselves. Once they are all up and running again, we have plans to help local businesses and people in need in the community at the same time.
