Central Food Network

On December 1st, the Central Food Network will be launching its first Christmas Hope Campaign. The goal is to raise over $5000 to help provide a Christmas and additional support to over 100 area residents who are struggling this time of year.

The online campaign provides different ways for people to give back to our community by offering a number of program options to donate to, including providing a senior a Christmas, providing a family a Christmas as well as Sharing the Warmth to give the gift of heat for people that struggle with high heating and hydro costs. Always welcome are general donations to the organization that will be used where it is needed most. 100% of the funds donated to the campaign go directly to assisting those that need it. Donations can also be made through the Central Food Network office.
 
Central Food Network offers a variety of programs including food banks, a distribution food hub, the Haliburton County Community Garden Network and Heat Bank Haliburton County. It also partners with various service clubs, government agencies and local businesses/volunteers to assist those in need with the help they need most. While Central Food Network is based out of Highlands East, we still support people through our various programs across the County.
