Ignace Food Bank
The Food Bank is located in the Ignace Town Plaza behind the Credit Union Building and is open every Thursday to anyone who needs food. The Food Bank is run by the MBCHC staff, partners and volunteers and is a member of the Regional Food Distribution Association.
The Carousel is a second-hand clothing and household goods outlet located near the Ignace Recreation Centre that is open every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. It is staffed by volunteers and is always willing to take donations which can be dropped off at the onsite donation bin.
The Community Garden
In 2020, the garden enters its 11th year of operation. Located along Highway 17, beside the Ignace Ambulance Service, the Garden is used by Food Bank clients and anyone who wishes to participate by planting and tending a raised bed of vegetables.
A dedicated group of volunteers ensures that families in need have food hampers and toys for children every year. Fund raising efforts are coordinated by MBCHC staff and various partnerships in the community support the annual drive for food and gifts.
