Did you know that the DONATION of FOOD Act removes liability from food donations?

If you are a local business with food to donate, please contact the office @ 905-274-9309. We have many local partners who supply excess food on a weekly basis - it helps many people. We are happy to take close to code (near the best before date) and perishable products too.

If you have a large amount to drop off please contact us to arrange a time for the delivery.
