Current Statistics

January – April 2024 we provided 80 households on average per month with food. This number represents about 201 individuals – 104 adults, 17 seniors, and 80 children.

In addition, just prior to the Easter holiday, we provided 94 bags of food to families.

At this time last year we provided 62 families on average, with food on a monthly basis, so Food Bank use is up about 30 % or more this year over the previous year and up over 50% compared to pre-pandemic statistics.

Last Christmas 207 food hampers were prepared and distributed and 270 children benefited from our Christmas “STAR” program receiving toiletries, toques and gloves, pyjamas, underwear and sox, along with age appropriate toys and stocking stuffers.
