Volunteer With Us

Together we can build a world without hunger – it all starts here.

Our Mission

We strive to ensure that no person will go hungry and that our clients are treated with respect and dignity.

How to Access the Food Bank

To become a registered client of the Powassan and District Food Bank, we require each member of your family’s Ontario Health Card information. In addition, verification of household income is required , if any (max $42,000 annual income).

Our Points System

Receiving items based on a point-value system benefits all customers. Every item accessible to our consumers is given a point value, with each home receiving a maximum of 155 points every visit. The point system takes into account the composition of the household and the ages of the members.

Milk, eggs, bread, (fresh vegetables when available), and meat or poultry products are included with each order. 
Baby food, formula, diapers, and feminine hygiene products will be included for free as they become available (zero points).

*A dependant (18 years +) is someone who relies on another person for help, most commonly financial help. A dependant can be a relative, or anyone else who is unable to care for themselves and must rely on someone else to do so.

Make A Real Change in Someone’s Life

Donate today to support children and families in need. Our work is entirely volunteer-based, and every contribution makes a difference. Donating takes only a minute, but the impact can last a lifetime.
