We started operation in October 1988 when a group of concerned Carleton Place residents recognized the problems created by the recession of the 1980’s.  With modest beginnings in the living room of one of the volunteers, as demand increased, the food bank moved to a store front on Bridge Street. It later inhabited a location on Franktown Road until 1997, before moving to Allan Street and currently to 84 Mill St. in Carleton Place in April of 2020.
