Call For Donations

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be challenging time for many families in our community. With the rising cost of groceries and other essential items, families are now struggling more than ever before. Each month, we help an increasing number of new families who are relying on the Infant Food Bank for essential items for their babies and children.

We need your help!
Donations of fruit/ vegetable baby pouches and infant cereals are needed immediately!

Donations can be made safely through our Navigators at 410 Bronte Street South, Monday- Friday 8:00am- 5:00pm and monetary donations can be made online by clicking the button below.

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
