The Sharing Place COVID-19 Update
The Sharing Place Food Centre will now deliver our food bank orders to avoid the potential spread of COVID-19. We ask existing members who require access to an emergency food order to contact us from 11:30 – 2:30 Monday -to- Thursday at 705-327-4273. Please note that any new members must register at our facility, please bring government issued ID for everyone in your household. We apologize but to keep you safe and minimize transfer of COVID-19 we are registering outside at the north side of 95 Dufferin St. Please dress accordingly based on weather conditions.
We are asking the public to be patient with our new process as we are still working on the logistics. Those who are interested in volunteering please keep an eye on our how to help section of our website. We will be updating it soon with COVID-19 volunteer requirements.
If there are people who wish to donate we are only accepting financial donations at this time. We purchase food at wholesale prices and exactly what we need for our orders. To support this new model of community food distribution click here to donate online. We need your help to fund masks, cleaning supplies, phone upgrades, fuel, food quarantine zones, bags, food, food and more food.
We will continue to evaluate the development of COVID-19 and respond accordingly. A big thanks to many people and organizations in our community who have been helping us both with funds, food and random supplies. Soldiers Memorial Hospital, Emergency Services, The Lighthouse, Salvation Army, Youth Haven and many other vital community organizations have amazing people who are on the front lines doing great work. Thank you all for helping and let’s keep our social space and flatten the curve.
