DOFN’s food pick-up and distribution program remains in operation during COVID-19, as it is essential for DOFN to support the organizations who remain open to ensure our patrons are getting food, essential needs and support during these hard times.

On a daily basis, a team of volunteer drivers pick up food and other dry goods from corporations, institutions and individuals for our use, as well as for other food banks, charities, and groups, including schools, who offer breakfast and lunch programs for students in need, in the Durham Region. Durham Outlook for the Needy helps over 50 organizations on a monthly basis.
