Aldershot Food Collection Committee reaches out to the wider community:

“We need your help!”

Unfortunately, the hot weather this week decreased the food donations.

Also, according to the Food Bank, they are low on Peanut butter and Mac & Cheese which is very unusual.

Of course, with the kids at home, their snacks and juice boxes are still needed and most families are also running out of toiletries.

Please share with your contacts, so maybe they can shop over the weekend and we can make up for the low donations this week to both the Food Bank and Compassion Society.

Robin Bailey, Executive Director of the Burlington Food Bank shared the love with the organizations the Food Bank collaborates with.

The Salvation Army tends to the east side of the city, The Compassion Society manages to reach a vulnerable sector (homeless) that we aren’t able to connect with in the same way. Wellington Square and their Community Meals program, is supported by the Food Bank every month and more regularly during COVID-19. The Food Bank provides meal preparation support from Glad Tidings Church, Open Doors at St. Christopher’s, Next Door Social Space.

Food for Life shares the rescued food around Halton.

Bailey makes the same plea every time he speaks:  If you are in need or know of someone who could use our help have them email us at or call 905-637-2273 to make arrangements to have food dropped at the door. If you live in Burlington, we are here to help.
