The Good Shepherd Food Bank in Alliston is a 100% volunteer organization run by over 85 members of our community. Volunteers sort food, clean the premises, transport food and interview and serve clients. Open to clients Mondays 1 to 3 PM and Thursdays 2 to 4 PM and the second Thursday of the month from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. They are able to serve approximately 265 families.
They are fully dependent on food and financial donations for day to day operations. The very generous support from local churches, schools, clubs, businesses and individuals has allowed them to continue to meet the increasing need in our community.
The Good Shepherd is a member of both the Canadian Association of Food Banks and the Ontario Association of Food Banks. They are a registered charitable organization overseen by an elected board of directors and incorporated since 2003.
My Sister's Place is a not-for-profit organization providing a broad range of services for women and their children living with the consequences of violence and abuse.
