Work on the new Elmvale & District Food Bank facility

... is moving forward following a physically distanced groundbreaking ceremony. Members of the Food Bank Board of Directors and volunteers, along with Township of Springwater Council and the contractor, each individually took their turn, at separate times, to break ground on this new venture.

The new Elmvale & District Food Bank is a cooperative undertaking between the Township of Springwater, the Food Bank and the community.

Located at 62 Yonge St. N. in Elmvale, the new facility will address food storage, privacy and accessibility concerns that are present at the current location in the Elmvale Community Hall building.

“We are thrilled to soon have a facility of our own which will permit us to serve the community effectively with storage rooms, interview rooms and comfortable waiting areas for citizens using the food bank,” says Jan Drinkill, Chair of the Elmvale & District Food Bank. “The location will provide ample parking, privacy, convenience for residents of the village of Elmvale and a nearby bus stop for those travelling from outlying communities.

Thank you to the Township of Springwater for steering this project to fruition. ”In February 2019, the Township committed to a one-time capital contribution of $100,000 towards the construction of a new facility and the Food Bank has fundraised $100,000. The municipality has also agreed to front end the necessary funds in excess of $200,000 to be repaid over a period of up to 10 years.

Construction  on  the  new  facility  is  expected  to  be  completed  in  early  fall,  with  occupancy  taking  place  before  the  busy  Thanksgiving  season.  Until  that  time,  the  Elmvale  Food  Bank  remains  open  and  operational  at 35 Queen St. W on Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 pm and Thursdays from 10 am – 12 noon with appropriate physical distancing measures in place.
