The Bluffs Food Bank opened with a simple goal: to feed the hungry in Birch Cliff. Since we opened our doors in 2003 and served 26 people, we’ve grown in families fed and services offered. The Bluffs Food Bank is so much more than just a food bank.
The original program we opened with. Each week we serve as many as 300 families representing 500 individuals.
Soup, sandwich, coffee and tea are served each week on Thursday providing a valuable meal and social time.
As many as 700 people each year visit us to receive help filing their taxes. Many aren’t aware of the government benefits such as the Child Tax Credit they will receive when they file their taxes.
Clothing can be a prohibitive expense after the high cost of housing is accounted for. Our Clothing Boutique stocks gently loved clothing and small housewares for sale at low prices.
We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. We have opportunities for everyone in many different areas.
A meaningful volunteer experience for students with an emphasis on building leaders. This program counts towards high school student’s volunteer requirements.
