The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank web site does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address. We would only obtain this type of information if you supply it by sending us an e-mail, submitting a general inquiry form, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
Visitors’ personal information received via e-mail is provided only to our Office personnel, who require the information to respond to inquiries. We do not use this information for any other purpose.
The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank uses “cookies” to improve the quality of your visit to The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank site by providing you with personalized information and features. Cookies are a software technology that enables our systems to recognize your computer and collect non-personal information about you. This type of information may include: type of browser used to access the Internet, type of operating system, and the domain of your Internet service provider. Cookies are anonymous;  The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank does not know the name, email address, phone number, or home address of anyone who visits our site. The Stoney Creek Community Food Bank does not sell or rent any information that we gather through the use of cookies.

Our servers automatically log information about visits to our Web site in the normal course of establishing and maintaining Web connections. Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors’ IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, Web pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to our Web and communications staff, and are used to improve our Web site and ensure that it provides the optimal Web experience for visitors.
We do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our system. The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains visitors’ IP addresses, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In such instances, raw data logs would be shared with appropriate investigative bodies authorized to investigate such breaches of security.
We regularly review our information-handling practices to ensure that we are abiding by this policy.

SUPPORT FROM OUR COMMUNTIY

Making A Difference

Last year COVID 19 significantly impacted our operations. Throughout the year just like other
establishments, we were required to sanitize more, install plastic service screens and change our
approach to service depending on the current health restrictions. But, thanks to the strong support
from our community we continued to provide this essential service.


Looking forward, like so many others, we intend to build back better. Recently a new commercial
refrigerator was acquired with the intent of offering milk and eggs on a regular basis. In addition, we
have joined a web-based data system which is used by almost all Food Banks in Canada. This software
will allow us to maintain better data and to present this data collectively to all levels of government to
promote advocacy and encourage better public policy.
