How You Can Help

Cash, cheque, and credit card donations can be made online, in person at The Food Bank of Waterloo Region or mailed to 50 Alpine Crt. Kitchener. Tax receipts are available for all donations.
Gift In Kinds
Financial donations and sponsorships are important to offset program and operating costs but gifts of equipment, supplies, space and services are also valued. Saving operating and administration costs allows more funds to be made available for food acquisition and distribution where it is needed most.
Examples may include: office furniture, office supplies, warehouse supplies, auto repair service, event supplies.
