Distributing good food to partner organizations and schools every week.
We offer lower prices than other wholesale distributors and central, fresh storage. Our goal is to maximize the good food at Guelph-Wellington’s food banks, food pantries and school snack/lunch programs.

The Community Food Warehouse
Our warehouse is located on Huron St, close to downtown Guelph. We receive deliveries and keep produce fresh for all of our programs in our 1500 sq ft cooler and 750 sq ft freezer. In 2021, $1.5 million of fresh food moved through our space.
Our Partnered Approach to Food Access
Food Access Organizations
Each neighbourhood in Guelph is unique, and the organizations that service these neighbourhoods know them the best. We partner with them to help maximize the good food they can have on their shelves, and reinforce the good work being done already.
We distribute to schools in Guelph and Wellington County, delivering fresh fruits and vegetables to meet the needs of their healthy lunch/snack programs for elementary school children. We work with Food & Friends of the Guelph Wellington Children’s Foundation to ensure we are offering a high quality service that decreases the amount of time spent shopping, decreases the cost of fruits and veggies, and increases the amount and quality of food for children!
We accept many different types of food donations to distribute to partners and community members. If you are a business/organization with a large food donation, please reach out directly to us.
We are a proud Food Rescue.ca rescuing agency! Learn more about them and how you can get involved here.
