Donate Food

Since its establishment in 1985, the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank has been helping people in need throughout the Cambridge and North Dumfries communities. Thankfully, our community has responded generously by donating food, money, and volunteer hours to help us meet the growing needs of families and individuals experiencing hunger.  We could not help so many people every year without your help and support! 

How can you help?  

We hope that you will partner with us to promote  healthier food choices for our neighbours in need. Donate foods that you eat, and food you would feed your family. Whenever possible, please donate fresh, local, and seasonal food

Please contact Jeff at to get involved in this vital community non-profit organization.

Reaching our food drive goals would not be possible without the many individuals, churches, grocery stores, fire halls, agencies, and businesses that generously support our Spring and Fall Food Drives.

Food drives are vital in providing a major source of staple food products. However, food donations play a critical role throughout the entire year in helping to keep our shelves stocked. During the summer months the Food Bank must often purchase food in order to maintain our level of support to clients. 

Donations can be dropped off at the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank or in our local grocery store bins throughout Cambridge. We can assist businesses, churches, and groups to organize food drives at any time of the year.
