Donate Healthy Food

The Sharing Place Food Centre relies on food donations to keep our shelves stocked. We play a vital role in helping the most vulnerable people in our community have access to nutritious food. You can donate food at any of our grocery store partners, directly to us at 95 Dufferin St. during operating hours, or by hosting a food drive to benefit those in need.

Donate Time

Volunteers are the backbone of The Sharing Place Food Centre. Without their dedication and commitment, we would not be able to support our members or run our programs. Whether it is a few hours weekly or monthly — at the food bank or in the community — their skills, time, and passion are always valued and appreciated. If you are interested in helping those in need and want to combat food insecurity and inspire hope in our community, please complete the Volunteer Application Form. We will be in touch to set up a time for an interview. Thank you.

Organize a Donation Drive
