How To Help

Donate Funds or Food

We appreciate every donation that comes in to assist with our food program. With so many people relying on emergency food programs right here in Durham Region it is important that we reach out to help those around us that are in need. Besides making a food or fund donation, you can organize a fundraising event. If you have an idea please give us a call @ 905-571-3863. We have a fundraising committee that considers every opportunity to raise funds!

Host a Fund or Food Drive

Hosting a Food/Fund Drive is an easy and great way to support our fight against hunger in Durham Region.  Every $1 raised allows us to distribute $7 worth of food to those in need.  Every item of food raised helps us to reach approximately 6,500 people in need across Durham each month.


Want to give some of your time in a friendly environment where you can make a difference? Feed the Need in Durham is the place for you. There are lots of opportunities to lend a hand such as sorting food, filling member agency orders, driving our delivery trucks, helping out in the kitchen, lending office support and assisting with events as they arise. We are happy to have many helping hands.

There are opportunities for groups to enjoy the occasional volunteer session. Whether you are a community group looking for an opportunity to give back or a business wanting a hands on team-building exercise, we can work with your group to provide a meaningful experience.
