Thank you for your interest in hosting a community event in support of the GBF Community Services Food Bank. Whether it’s your goal to collect food, raise awareness, raise monetary donations or a combination of both, events of all sizes play a very important part in raising awareness about hunger in Grimsby and providing the food and funds we need to take care of our neighbours.

Please contact the Food Bank if you require collection boxes for food and monetary donations at your event. Please send us the details of your event so that we can post the information on our website.

We ask that all community partners advise us of their intentions and seek approval to proceed with their event and/or food drive. This ensures that all of our staff are aware of the details if approached by other community members. If you have any questions about organizing an event or food drive, please contact Stacy Elia, Executive Director at stacy@gbfgrimsby.com or (905)309 5664 ext. 33.
