The Lanark County Food Bank (LCFB) began serving the community in October 1988, when a group of concerned Carleton Place residents recognized the problems of hunger created by the recession of the 1980’s. The LCFB is a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks and is a registered charity. Every month in 2014 the Lanark County Food Bank issued, on average, 14,000 pounds of food and fed over 600 clients—over 220 were children. We are supported solely by private donations and receive no support from any level of government. The LCFB serves: Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills (Almonte, Clayton, Pakenham, Appleton, Blakeney), Franktown, Ashton, Innisville, and White Lake.
The LCFB is open Monday 5-7, Tuesday 9-1, Wednesday 5-7, Thursday & Friday 9-12.
