Our Directors

Our Board

BFC is managed and run 100 % by volunteers who want to help those in need in our community. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and even from outside Barrhaven.

Our Board of Directors, elected by the community, is responsible for overall management. Volunteer coordinators oversee operations such as picking up and sorting donations, packing food orders, arranging and delivering food, and liaising with volunteers and donors.
