Food Bank

The Windsor Food Bank is made possible through generous donations of Windsor's citizens, businesses, schools, religious institutions, civic organizations, and many more.  Funds for the food bank are also made available through the fund raising efforts of the Windsor Community Service Council.  The majority of the food is provided to us by Foodshare.

 

The Windsor Food Bank is open four days a week and is staffed by one Social Services Staff member and many wonderful volunteers.
