Welcome to the Aurora Food Pantry
Since 1990 the Aurora Food Pantry has been distributing food at no cost to residents of Aurora and north Oak Ridges. The purpose of the food pantry is to provide food to those who demonstrate an immediate need. The clients who come to the Aurora Food Pantry for help have faced a variety of circumstances. For many, an unexpected expense, an illness, or accident, loss of income becomes a crisis which forces them to choose between paying for groceries, rent, or utilities. The Aurora Food Pantry provides food assistance to individuals and families during their toughest times. In 2014, the pantry provided meals for 6300 people in need in our community.
Remembering Jim Rummenie
Jim Rummenie, longtime supporter and volunteer at Aurora Food Pantry passed away today, December 18th, 2015.
Best Before Dates
When making a food donation to the Aurora Food Pantry, please ensure that items have been checked and are within the Best Before period or have not expired. This first step reduces food waste at the Pantry.
A special thank you to our many volunteers and supporters...
