The Burlington Food Bank, which provides food and supplies to clients and over 20 emergency food programs across the city, has stated that they are running low on food stocks.

“We are getting very low on our food stocks and could really use your help,” said the Burlington Food Bank on Twitter. “If you have the time to do a local food drive, we would really appreciate it!”

The food bank’s most needed items include canned vegetables, pasta sauce (preferably cans), rice (1kg or 2kg sizes), shampoo, deodorant, body wash and bars of soap, crackers, canned tomatoes, soup (large and small), canned meat (ham, turkey, chicken), cereal and canned fruit.

Formed in 1991, the organization has grown to provide a total of 1,747 lbs of food each day that goes directly to Burlington residents in need. A total of 43 per cent of Burlington Food Bank’s clients are families with children. 

“Our role in the community is to collect, purchase, grow, and distribute food directly to families in Burlington that need a little help,” says the organization’s website.
