The Infant Food Bank (IFB) is dedicated to helping local families in need by providing diapers, formula, baby food and cereal monthly; and by introducing these families to free Early Years programs and supports offered at MCRC and other community agencies

In partnership with The Salvation Army MCRC currently helps an average of 40 families per month who require 200 diapers, 4 boxes of cereal, 120 jars or pouches of baby food, and 4 cans of formula at each visit.

Over the course of 2017, we served an average of 46 families per month (56 children per month).

Volunteer
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 IFB. 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
