General Information

Food Bank EntranceThe Table Food Bank is a warm and welcoming place free of judgment. We welcome anyone from our community to come and shop for themselves based on the limits posted on our food shelves. First time guests register by providing only their name, address, phone number and number of dependents. Shoppers representing 1-2 people fill one basket, and families of 3 or more may fill two baskets (plus occasional additional items).

Prayer Request BoxTTFB regularly offers beverages and snacks that may be enjoyed on our couch or table areas. A children’s play area is available and is stocked with some books and toys. Adult and children’s books, magazines, Bibles and Christian literature are available for our guests. Our Clothing and Goods section is well organized and stocked with adult and children’s clothing, footwear and outerwear.  Various kitchen and household items, toys and bedding are available as well.

Welcome TableTTFB is happy to post church and community events, services and offerings on our bulletin board. Members of our Love Connection Team are generally available to meet with guests in our office who request prayer, a listening ear, or have other specific needs.  Guests are welcome to write down prayer requests for our Prayer Request Box anytime.

Donations

We welcome donations of food, clothing and household items during our regularly scheduled hours of operation. We have fridges and freezers to accept clearly labelled donations of fresh and frozen food.

Though we are grateful for food donated by community members, the Table Food Bank purchases the majority of our food from Hands Extended in Wellandport, ON. One 600lb. skid of beverages, canned and packaged food, cleaning supplies and toiletries is purchased for $200, including shipping through Muskoka Transport.

Stories

This past year or so our finances have been so bad that without the soup kitchen and the food bank we would have had many days/weeks when we’d not have had food to eat.  We’ve been used to being able to donate rather than having to use these services, yet nobody has made us feel less valuable as human beings because of the change in our circumstances.  Everyone makes us feel welcome, loved, and valued.”

“The Soup Kitchen and Food Bank help people and families out that have a hard time or are having a hard time trying to pay bills and get food to feed their families. Thank you everyone for helping.”
