84 Mill St. Carleton Place

Their mission is to provide safe and nutritional food assistance to persons in need using the acquisition of food resources through donations, fundraising events, and collaborating with community partners. A group of concerned Carleton Place residents who recognized the problems created by the recession of the 1980s created the food bank in October 1988. With modest beginnings in the living room of one of the volunteers, as demand increased, the food bank moved to a store front on Bridge Street. It later inhabited a location on Franktown Road until 1997, before moving to Allan Street and currently to 84 Mill St. in Carleton Place in April of 2020.
