St Paul's on-the-Hill Community Food Bank serving Ajax and Pickering

Established in 1991 as a temporary outreach program by some members of St. Paul's on-the-Hill Anglican Church, the food bank has outgrown several locations. 

Unfortunately, the need has not diminished over the years but the base has broadened. We now draw volunteers from across the local community.  Over fifty individuals regularly donate their time and efforts to keep the food bank operating.  We are also generously supported by many individuals, businesses and organizations.  Without the strong support of the community we could not continue to operate. 

The food bank is staffed entirely by volunteers.  100% of funds raised are used to operate the food bank and buy food.

We depend on the generosity of community members who support our mission and vision.  You can help too by contributing  food or making a donation.   Because food collection is uncoordinated, we often end up with too much of one item and not enough of another.  You can help us stock our shelves based on current need. 



The Somcan Foundation in December of 2016 organized an online auction to help support the needs of St. Paul's Community Food Bank in our community.


With your support, we raised $5200.00 to this very deserving community.


From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! 


This wouldn't have been possible without your generous donations and involvement in our auction.
