Welcome to the Heart of the Food Bank
The King Township Food Bank does not have a “storefront”. Food is stored in the “depot” – located in the basement of the Parish Hall at Christ Church in Kettleby. Lined with storage shelves, with small assembly lines in the middle for sorting and packing, the depot right now is bursting at the seams, thanks to the generous food drives in the community during the holiday season.
One week each month, a loyal group of volunteers pack food into boxes and bins, which are transported to three distribution locations – Schomberg, Kettleby and King City. Food bank registrants, which ranged from 168 to 184 people in 2014, come to one of those locations to pick up their food.
