Elgin Food Bank

The Elgin Food Bank is a cooperative effort operating from Bethel Tabernacle and staffed by a group of community volunteers. Some 25 area families regularly receive support from the food bank which now works on a point system. Volunteers have more personal interaction with recipients as they are able to choose the items they need most and not take home things they are unable to use. Elgin United Church supports this initiative through envelope and cash donations as well as proceeds of fund raising events.
