How Can Food Banks Help Me?

If you are having trouble paying for nutritious food, your local food bank can help you get some. A Food Bank is a place where you can go to pick up food for free.

The amount of food you receive depends on the number of people in your family and on how much food the bank has available. Most food banks in Ontario give a 3-day supply of food once or twice per month.
