The food bank in Warkworth is here to provide nutritional food, support and resources when times are hard and the cupboard’s looking bare. We can provide a stop gap supply of basics and staples like milk, meat, bread, eggs and margarine as well as non-perishable canned and dry goods.
Each month, we provide assistance to about 21 households, comprised of 60 individuals, 37% of whom are children.
The food bank is run by our volunteers, who transport food, re-stock shelves and operate the food bank itself. If you would like to volunteer, there’s more information here. Donations help enormously too – what we need is non-perishable food donations (no past expiry date food, please check beforehand. We simply have to waste our time turning it into waste.) and, if you can, please make a monetary donation here.
The food bank was originally started in 2005 and moved to its current location in St. Paul’s United Church, Warkworth in 2009. In 2012, we proudly became a Canadian registered charity – 7 Hills Community Pantry. Our funding comes from fundraising events such as Community Care Diner’s Club lunches and generous donations from individuals, community organizations and agencies.
7 Hills Community Pantry serves Warkworth Ontario, the K0K 3K0 region of Trent Hills.
