North York Harvest Food Bank continues to monitor the evolving COVID-19 pandemic as we strategize new and modified food distribution and acquisition methods that adhere to social distancing best practices and ensure public safety.

What does this mean for You and How Can You Help?

We have cancelled this year’s Spring Food Drive out of concern for the health and safety of our volunteers and our donors. Now, more than ever, our community needs your support to face this unprecedented challenge. 

Monetary donations will allow us to purchase food in large quantities directly from manufacturers, reduce physical contact and quickly re-distribute to those in need. Please make your donation by clicking the above banner.

Food donations can be dropped off at our warehouse at 116 Industry Street, Toronto M6M 4L8 between 9am and 3pm. Our most needed items are: pasta/rice/grains, canned vegetables, canned tomatoes, canned fish, and cooking oil.

Monetary donations are preferred in lieu of food donations at this time as food donations requires our limited staff to sort, organize, and repack into emergency hampers. We also want to limit person to person contact to ensure your safety as well as that of our staff.
