Thank you to Food Banks Canada for supporting Cherryville Community Food & Resource Society with a very generous grant, with
funding through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Emergency Food Security Fund. The food security services we provide would not be possible without your incredible support.
Photos are of our 2021 Christmas Hamper & Gifts for Children Event. Thanks to Food Banks Canada, we were able to purchase food to fill 70 hampers! This is an increase compared to previous years and a testament to how COVID-19 continues to impact our community. Thank you again for your ongoing support!
The students from Cherryville Elementary School who helped the Cherryville Community Food & Resource Society set up and prepare hampers for the Christmas Hamper & Gifts for Children event. Thank you all!

With your support, we are able to make a huge impact on our community and surrounding areas. There are many different ways that you can support Cherryville Community Food Bank in addition to making monetary donations. We accept food donations that are then distributed among hampers, we are always looking for new volunteers who want to make a difference in the community, and we appreciate personal fundraising efforts. A personal fundraising effort may include making an honorable mention to our food bank so others are aware of our organization and the services we provide or could include making a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser where funds go to the Cherryville Food Bank as one of our seasonal volunteers, Bea Bauer, recently did.
We are beyond grateful for those who have supported us and continue to support us especially during these difficult times as COVID-19 has led many families into extreme financial hardship. Our doors remain open to support our families in crisis, and it is because of you that we can do this.
Thank you for your commitment to the Cherryville Community Food Bank, we appreciate your support.
Thanks to Food Banks Canada, we now have a freezer safe door installed to safely store all of our perishable items. Our freezer has on average 1500-3000lbs of frozen food that is distributed to Cherryville residents through monthly hampers and food security programs. We are so grateful to have this new door installed because we no longer have to worry about losing any perishable items due to inadequate equipment. Thank you again Food Banks Canada, we are absolutely thrilled with our new door!
