:: WHCI Community Food Bank ::

Program Objectives:
Windsor Homes Coalition Inc. recognized the local need for food assistanceamong both itstenants and other low-income people more than twenty-five years ago and so established the WHCI Community Food Bank. The WHCI Bank assists anywhere from one to two thousand people annually, some 40% of which are children. Most of our Food Bank users, more than 80%, are non-tenant low-income people living within a mile of our 900 Howard Avenue location. Many of these users, as much as one third in any given year, are new food bank users, a fact which demonstrates the on-going community need for this type of assistance.

Program Overview:
Access to the WHCI Community Food Bank is open to any low-income, fixed-income or homeless person. WHCI tenants are allowed to use the Food Bank once every two weeks, while non-tenants have access once a month. The Food Bank is open Monday & Friday 1:30pm - 4:00 PM and Tuesday & Thursday 9:30-11:30 AM.

The volume of food items dispensed by the WHCI Food Bank is considerable, and includes a wide variety of canned goods, dry food items, and various frozen and other perishable food products. Many of these items are donated while others are purchased.

The WHCI Community Food Bank also shares its food with other aid agencies including the Downtown Mission and the Salvation Army, as well as with other members of the Windsor and Essex County Food Banks Association.

Opportunities to Help:
WHCI’s ability to assist tenant families with educational expenses is contingent upon its ability to attract donations of monies from Windsor area businesses, community organizations and concerned individuals. Support levels are currently limited to $200 per family per annum, admittedly a modest amount considering the cost of most programs.

Any company, community organization or individual interested in supporting or otherwise assisting our efforts through the WHCI Community Food Bank should contact Tenant Advocate at 258-4501.
