The Food Bank aims to address the critical issue arising from the cost-of-living crisis, pet food insecurity, by providing free pet food and supplies to low income individuals and the elderly who are struggling to afford proper nutrition for their beloved pets. Mission & Vision:
The food pet bank's mission is to ensure that no pets go hungry by providing access to nutritious pet food and supplies, fostering the well-being and happiness of pets, and supporting the human-animal bond. Our vision is to create a community where all pets receive adequate food and care.
Our food bank will primarily target the elderly people who live alone with their pets., individuals, who own pets who are struggling to afford pet food. We will collaborate with the local social services, outreach, to identify and reach out to those in need. No referral, is necessary, we operate a mobile service only. Please call for more information.
Animals play an important role in the lives of older people. They can be a source of constancy and care. For many elders, walking, grooming, feeding and playing with their pets can bring a sense of empowerment and an opportunity for an older person still to be a caring and nurturing role. Research has found that older peoples interactions with companion animals can increase attentiveness to own self care needs.
