Helping Out

Feeding Our Community During COVID-19

The Food Bank of Waterloo Region continues to monitor #COVID-19 and the impact on our community and those in need of food assistance. They are working with our community programs and agency partners, as part of the Community Food Assistance Network, to help people in need of food assistance during this time:

• The Community Food Assistance Network is part of the Region of Waterloo’s Pandemic and Emergency Plans. Should the COVID-19 situation escalate or any other large scale emergency is declared, we have detailed protocols in place to ensure the ongoing service delivery of food and other critical supports.

• Working with the Community Food Assistance Network to protect and support vulnerable community members, ensuring that those who need food receive it.

While it is recommended to prepare for emergency situations, such as this, the reality is not everyone is able to do so. During these uncertain times, many people and families in Waterloo Region will feel the stress of time away from work, unexpected illnesses and being unable to purchase necessities due to empty grocery store shelves.

Donations and onging support "will allow the Food Bank to purchase many of our most needed items, helping to fill gaps in our inventory, and support various operational activities that ensure we are able to pick up and deliver food to the Community Food Assistance Network," says Wendi Campbell, "with a system of 100+ community programs and agency partners working together to provide food and access to other vital supports".

During this state of emergency The Food Bank of Waterloo Region remains fully operational, should you have any questions about the work you are contributing to.
