Help Our Neighbours in Need

People need food to survive. But some people in our community are faced with a choice between this most basic necessity and others.  Please help us help them. The Centretown Community Food Centre welcomes donations to help purchase extra food to serve our neighbours. Over half of the Centre’s annual revenues comes from donations by generous individuals, local businesses and foundations. The balance comes from the Food Centre’s parent organization, Centretown Churches Social Action Committee (CCSAC) and its member churches. Learn more about the important work of CCSAC.
