It has been one week since we have had to change how we do things here at the Cambridge Food Bank. While we wish we never had to make these changes, we know this is what’s best for our community, our staff and our volunteers. Our regular scheduled programs are still suspended at this time. This also includes all of our volunteers. Mike’s Lunch will continue to run, but as a grab-and-go style lunch.
Starting Monday March 23, 2020 Co-op will also be suspended. Co-op members will be able to access an emergency hamper once a week. These hampers will be available at 54 Ainslie St. South.
Emergency hampers are available to be picked up once a week. During this time you do not need to provide identification or proof of income. Our hours for pick up will continue as follows;
Monday 12:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Tuesday 12:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Wednesday 12:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Thursday 12:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Friday 12:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
If you are in need of a hamper but are not able to pick it up yourself, please send a family member, friend or a neighbour. This is especially important for elderly or immune compromised individuals. When picking up a hamper, please provide us with your name and number of people in your family. We ask that you please stay behind the tables that have been set up and grab your hamper and go. We are trying to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has come together to support us, it has really shown us how strong this beautiful community is! We want to give a huge shout out to some local restaurants that have donated to us.
For the time being we are not accepting clothing donations. Large donations of food can be received at our back door. Smaller donations can be done at grocery store bins. Monetary donations can be done through Canada Helps or cheques can be mailed to 54 Ainslie St. South, Cambridge, ON. N1R3K3.
Thank you for your continuous support and understanding during this time!
We will continue to post updates on our website and our social media channels.
