The Salvation Army Food Bank in Fort Erie relies heavily on the food donated by our community and as such, needs regular infusions through food drives organized by both our staff and volunteers as well as members of the community.  If you would like to arrange a food drive please contact our Community & Family Services Worker at 905-871-1592 ext 22 or email
