THE FACE OF
HUNGER IS CHANGING
THE BOBCAYGEON FOOD BANK
The Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank is a non-profit, registered charity that facilitates a year-round food bank for families and individuals in need. We are the only independent food bank left in Ontario and all of the food and funds collected stays in Bobcaygeon.
The foodbank has no paid employees and is operated entirely by volunteers who provide their time and energy in staffing the Food Bank, stocking the shelves and purchasing food with donated funds. We rely on food and monetary donations from local residents and businesses through food drives and depository bins located at supermarkets.

The Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB) released a report revealing that almost 360,000 individuals - including 120,000 children - are turning to food banks each month.
The 2015 Hunger Report also finds a 35% spike in the number of senior citizens, and a dramatic rise in the number of single person households, visiting Ontario's food banks.
