Many of our new clients are working-families with low incomes or senior citizens; 38% of our clients are children.
The cost of groceries has increased by eight percent.
This affects our buying power as well as explains the increase in demand for our service.
We very much appreciate the support of the community for the Cranbrook Food Bank

donations which we supplement by purchasing food as needed

Do you know how much of an impact your donation makes? How far your dollar goes?
What's better, monetary donation or food donation?
Well, while this metric has been used for some time now and as a local food bank you may have your own meal metric based on your individual situation, it's a good time to re-visit. Food Banks Canada devised a "national meals metric" for Canadian Food Banks that can easily be understood by Canadians.
For every $1 donated food banks are able to acquire and share 3lbs of food
or the equivalent of 3 meals.
