The Activettes have been running the Food Bank since 1995 when the first Food Bank was in the basement of the Anglican church. 

The current location was acquired in 2008. In 2019, an additional bay was purchased to expand operations. 

The Food Bank has two part-time employees and on average, 20 volunteers working weekly to make a difference in the community.
