Thunder Bay – While the Thunder Bay Food Bank (TBFB) re-opened this fall, operations have been altered due to COVID-19, resulting in not being able to accept food donations at this time. Current food bank operations have been reduced to once every two weeks, and involve giving out pre-made hampers that are distributed through the Regional Food Distribution Association (RFDA).
The Food Bank continues to gratefully accept cash donations, which will go towards the purchase of fresh food items to add to the hampers. Cheques can be mailed to Thunder Bay Food Bank at 129 E. Miles Street, P7C 1J5.
Thunder Bay Food Bank will be open this Friday morning for the final time in 2020, then close for the holidays and re-open on Friday January 8, 2021 from 9 to 11 a.m. Clients are asked to pre-register through 211.
Anyone wanting to donate food items should contact the RFDA, or check with the Dew Drop Inn, Salvation Army, or Shelter House, as these locations are continuing to serve food throughout the holiday season.
The Board of the Food Bank wishes the best of the season to all our clients and supporters, and thanks Thunder Bay residents for their generosity during the holiday season and throughout the year.
