Food Bank

Christ Church St. James has operated a food bank in the basement of our church building for over 27 years now! The Christ Church St. James Food Pantry is one of three agencies under the auspices of the Daily Bread Food Bank serving southern Etobicoke and is part of the South Etobicoke Food Network. Stonegate Ministry has a key role in our food pantry providing leadership, financial support and food contributions from their partner churches. We are grateful for all donations – both financial and food-wise and for our many volunteers.
