About the West Muskoka Food Bank

The Muskoka Lakes region is blessed with an abudance of riches but 60% of the permanent households earn less than $30,000 per year and 30% of those live below the poverty level.

At the West Muskoka Food Bank we can't solve all of the needs of our community, so we just focus on addressing hunger. We don't have a lot of rules. If you are hungry, we will give you food. If you are in a position to donate food or money you can rest assured that 99% your donations will go to those in need.
