NOTE: You may be referred to another food bank if you live outside of Bancroft and the immediate area. To ensure more equitable and fair access to food in more rural areas we freely share food resources & other supports with neighbouring food banks in the communities of Coe Hill, Maynooth & Lake St Peter as part of North Hastings County. Further food sharing partnerships are ongoing with surrounding organizations and food banks in areas such as Cardiff, WIlberforce, Barry's Bay and as far away as Belleville.
