Infant Food Bank

Call For Donations

The pandemic continues to be challenging for many families. Each month we help more and more new families who are relying on the Infant Food Bank. In the month of March, we provided baby food and essentials to over 140 children in need! This is a 37% increase compared to 2020.     

We need your help! Donations of fruit/ vegetable baby pouches and diapers size 5 and 6 are needed immediately! 

Donations can be made safely at 410 Bronte Street South, Monday- Friday 8:00am- 5:00pm and monetary donations can be made online. 

Thank you for your continuous support to MCRC’S Infant Food Bank

Volunteer with Food Drives

MCRC values our volunteers! However, you must be at least 16 years old to volunteer in the Infant Food Bank and opportunities are limited. We cannot do what we do for Milton families without community support including yours. We encourage individuals, families, groups, students and more to hold food drives on behalf of the Infant Food Bank. We supply bins, signage and information sheets for these events, and can help with pick up.

High school students can earn up to four hours of volunteer time by completing a food drive. Please contact Laura Gilbert at infantfoodbank@mcrc.on.ca for more information or call 905-876-1244 ext. 120
