Infant Food Bank Donor FAQs


Together, we can do more!

The 2022/2023 Infant Food Bank expansion campaign has ended!


At MCRC we asked ourselves, "How can we do more for families?"

The Infant Food Bank is a unique and vital support for families in Halton, working to bring food stability and security to our community, neighbours and friends. We are one of a kind and need to expand to better serve Halton. Opening another location in a targeted area of Halton will help more families overcome barriers like transportation, and improve accessibility.

MCRC's annual Fill a Crib campaign is complete! Thank you for helping us fill cribs with essential infant supplies between November 28 - January 15, 2024.
