The Food Hub

Since April 1, 2022, the Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre proudly houses the Food Hub.

How it Works

  • The London Food Coalition (LCF) collects and rescues food donations from grocery stores across London

  • The food donations are brought to the Food Hub at Glen Cairn, where volunteers inspect, sort, and pack the food for distribution. A portion of the food stays at Glen Cairn, which is used to support our Basic Needs / Emergency Food Cupboards
     

  • Ark Aid Mission collects the food and delivers it to 19 other member agencies across London to help support their food programs

Did you know?

The Food Hub collects and distributes an average of 25,000 lbs of food every month.
That's almost 200 lbs per member agency!

Core Partners

The Centre Market would not be made possible without the generous support from the London Food Coalition and Ark Aid Mission.

London Food Coalition

The London Food Coalition is a coordinated food alliance of community organizations committed to ending hunger and food insecurity through the rescue of unwanted food from grocery stores, focused on the gathering and distributing of food and other basic supplies to persons experiencing food insecurity within the Middlesex and London area. LCF's mission is to Rescue, Recover and Redistribute. Additionally, they educate and increase the public’s understanding of reducing food waste by collecting and distributing information on this topic. Glen Cairn is 1 of 20 community member agencies.

You can help end hunger!

Did you know that in 2021, 15.9% of households in the ten provinces experienced some level of food insecurity in the previous 12 months? That amounts to 5.8 million people, including almost 1.4 million children under the age of 18, living in food-insecure households. When you donate, you help feed your neighbours in need.
