Food on your table today.

And a path to a better tomorrow.

working as 
a community to make it happen.

Our independent, non-profit food bank provides fresh and non-perishable foods — plus the first steps to becoming more self-sufficient — for the growing number of people who are going hungry in Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny and Tay Townships, and Christian Island.

Food insecurity is an urgent challenge across our region. Together, we can do something about it.

We’re here to support you.

You may have an image of what a food bank looks like. Ours is different.

  • We’re like a friendly neighbourhood grocery store. No one hands you a bag already packed with food. You walk through our shop with a basket, making your own choices.
  • We offer perishable and non-perishable foods. Including fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, dairy and baked goods. So you can plan and enjoy healthy, nutritious meals.
  • We also help you become more self-sustaining. Our community resource navigator works with you confidentially to set goals and find the support you need to reach them.
  • Everyone’s welcome here. People of diverse backgrounds and experiences who need a little help but still expect to be treated with dignity and respect, free from judgement.
  • Like the generous community that supports us, we care deeply about providing food to neighbours in need and helping them start to transform their lives.

“Expanding the food network program and being able to fill families’ pantries with healthy basics is a priority for us. The GBFN's process helps all in need and does it with dignity.”

— Greg Garratt, President, Georgian Bay Métis Council
