BLUFFS FOOD BANK/TAX CLINIC CLOSURE

In order to combat the spread of COVID-19, Bluffs Food Bank and the Income Tax Clinic will be closed for the next two weeks starting the week of March 16.  At the end of this two-week period, we will evaluate the situation and provide you with an update.

​Clients who would like to find alternative sources of food should contact 211 Toronto by calling 2-1-1 or by checking the 211 Toronto website at https://www.211toronto.ca/.

​If you are in touch with any of our clients, please pass on this information to them.  We are updating our website and Facebook page and changing our voicemail greeting to reflect our closure.

​We regret the difficulty that this causes for our clients, but we believe that it is the responsible thing to do.

In the meantime, all deliveries are suspended, and you are invited to collect donations until we re-open.  Suggested donations for the coming weeks are cleaning supplies, bar soap, laundry detergent, wipes, and disinfectant.
 
Thank you for your support and understanding.
