Unfortunately, many families in our local community are experiencing issues with accessing food, whether it be because of un-paid time off due to the recent closures, lack of transportation, or lack of availability of food at local retail stores.

During pandemic times, all households are at risk of having food access issues.  However, there are groups of people who are at higher risk including,

  • Households with seniors
  • Households dependent on social assistance for income
  • Households working for low-paying wages
  • Households led by females as lone parents
  • Renters
  • Post-secondary students

If you are unable to afford food, emergency food services in Windsor and Essex County are available to help. By calling 211, you will be connected with open food banks or food hubs that can provide support.

If you are in need of emergency food, please call 211 to be connected with an emergency food service.
