Food Bank Program

What is it?

The Bridges Centre is a place that provides non-perishable food and used clothing for free to meet the growing needs of our community.

When is it open?

Food Bank Program

Because of the pandemic, the government stay-at-home order and the risk of COVID transmission to those we serve and to our volunteers, the Bridges Centre is closed through the month of May. If the situation in Waterloo Region improves through May our next opening could be on Saturday, June 12, 2021 with appointment requests accepted starting on May 31. Please revisit this page after May 30 for updated information. During our closure, visit thefoodbank.ca/vitalservice or call 519-743-5576 ext. 340 if you need food.

Clothing Program

Due to the current COVID-19 situation used clothing distribution is suspended until further notice.

Where is it?

It is located at Glencairn Church. It can be reached by bus routes #3 Ottawa, #12 Fairview or #201 Conestoga. The church is a 15-minute walk from the Forest Glen terminal.

To make a donation, please drop off non-perishable food items at the church. Please call before you come to make sure someone is here.
