Who We Are

Our Mission

 

The House of Blessing, fulfilling God’s mandate: 

serving those who are hurting and in need.


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat… 

Matthew 25:3

 

Stratford House of Blessing has been helping people in need in Stratford, Ontario and area for over 37 years.

 

We started off in a 900 square foot house on Wellington Street and now use every inch of our 9000 square foot building on Erie Street.

We are a local food bank who helps families and individuals in their immediate time of need.

Our Food Bank Program has recently expanded to provide free home delivery of food hampers and appointment bookings for greater safety and comfort.  In addition to food we provide personal care items (toiletries, feminine hygiene products and incontinence supplies).  For our babies we provide diapers and formula.

We are always striving to provide more fresh produce, healthy kids' snacks and protein products.  We partner with local grocers, farmers, gardeners, businesses and food associations to make this happen.  

We couldn't do what we do without the support of our local community!

Some of our additional programs include:

  • Welcome to the World Baskets - a baby shower in a hamper for caring for new babies

  • Off to School Smiling - a brand new backpack and school supplies for school-aged children

  • Christmas Toy Program - parents and grandparent come in and choose gifts for the children in their lives

  • Fresh Start Program - new supplies for starting over including workwear and steel-toed boots

  • Emergency Support for People Living with Insecure Housing - customized support to individuals who are living in unique living conditions (homeless, lacking cooking facilities)

  • Community Referrals and Registrations
