About the Fairview Food Pantry
The Fairview Food Pantry project began in the spring of 2021 to help address the high rates of poverty, especially among children and seniors, in parts of the Clayton Park and Fairview neighbourhoods. Community members, working through the Fairview Community Association, have placed 3 outdoor food pantries in Fairview to provide support in between weekly food bank visits. The pantries are filled with non-perishable food items and toiletries, and are accessible any time of day.
Pantry items are for everyone! Take what you need, but leave some for others. Please check expiry dates before donating.
3 Pantry Locations:
- Fairview Resource Centre – 6 Titus St.
- Al-Barakah Mosque – 12 Hillcrest St.
- Fairview United Church – 3524 Dutch Village Rd.
