The Food Bank Farm was created in response to an obvious need in the community of Sault Ste. Marie for fresh produce to supplement the food currently provided to individuals and families in need via the food bank system that exists within the city.
We operate the farm on a not-for-profit basis, and are dedicated to producing the maximum volume of a variety of high quality, nutritious produce items to those in the community who lack the financial resources to obtain food through traditional retail outlets.
The farm site is located within the city limits on Maki road, and use of the land, buildings and equipment have been donated by the property owners, Colin and Sharon Templeton. Operation of the farm is led by the operations manager, Isabelle Trottier-Saucier, and Colin Templeton with assistance of volunteers from the community.
Distribution of food produced by the farm is coordinated by Rom Sim, and the dedicated staff of the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen Community Centre located at 172 James St. in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. (http://www.soupkitchencommunitycentre.org/)
The successful operation of the farm is entirely supported by financial donations from within the community. We thank our donors for their ongoing support and generosity, see how you can help
Charitable donations for the operation of the farm are held in trust, and administered by the Soup Kitchen consistent with their established financial and management procedures.
