We need your help now more than ever
There are a number of ways to help the Aurora Food Pantry.
We welcome food donations from any interested groups who would like to hold a food drive. Please contact us to find out what our specific needs are, as they vary from time to time. While food drives are popular during the holiday season, food is needed throughout the year; therefore, we always encourage you to choose a month that is not during peak season to hold a food drive.
For more information on holding a food drive and to receive of list of suggested items, please call us at 905-841-1577.
The Aurora Food Pantry welcomes both monetary and non-perishable food donations. Donated food should be non-perishable food and can be dropped off at the Pantry, local fire stations, and many local grocery stores.
Financial donations are always appreciated. The funds are used to cover the cost of operating the Pantry and to purchase food that is in short supply. A monetary donation can be dropped off at the Pantry or through the Canada Helps website, www.canadahelps.org.
Consider making a giving page on www.canadahelps.org in support of the Aurora Food Panty and encourage your friends and family to contribute to your cause of feeding the hungry in Aurora. For additional information regarding donations, please click here.
We have several opportunities available for those who would like to volunteer. For more information on the different roles available, please click here.
Groups of volunteers assist with all phases of the Pantry's operation on a rotational basis. We appreciate our volunteers as they are critical to providing emergency food relief to the community.
All volunteers must be scheduled in advance. Unfortunately, we cannot accept volunteers who drop-in without a previous arrangement.
There are three different shifts available:
Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm; the second, third and fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:00am to 12:00pm; and the second, third and fourth Thursday of each month from 5:30pm until 8:00pm.
To sign up for a volunteer duty and be put on schedule please call 905-841-1577 or send us an email here.
