Infant Food Bank Families

Family Supports

MCRC’s Infant Food Bank is dedicated to helping local families in need by providing a monthly supply of diapers, formula, baby food and cereal. The Infant Food Bank also offers these families referrals to EarlyON programs, supports, services and other community agencies.

Food For Life

Through MCRC’s Partnership with Food for Life, families have access to the Community Fridge located in MCRC’s Main Lobby. This is a good place to gather some fresh fruit, vegetables and other non-perishable foods for a small family (3 people or fewer) one time per week. Bring a reusable bag with you to collect items from the fridge that suit your family's needs. The Community Fridge receives deliveries of fresh foods on Monday and Thursday mornings. Families and individuals wishing to access the fridge will need to download the Food for Life app and register. They will then receive a membership number and can begin booking an appointment to visit the fridge on either the Monday or the Thursday.

The Community Fridge at MCRC welcomes individuals and families with a registration number who have booked an appointment on the app.
