As of F2014, the Food Bank employs ten full-time equivalent staff and like most food banks throughout Canada, CFB provides emergency food hampers to assist individuals in immediate need. CFB works in partnership with the Salvation Army to provide people with emergency food assistance eight times a year.

Members assist Food Bank staff to carry out many administrative, warehouse, and maintenance tasks.

To meet these additional needs of its clients, CFB offers a variety of support services including nutrition workshops, grandparents support groups, Christmas sponsorships, baby baskets and cloth diaper programs, craft and school supplies programs, and used clothing distribution. In addition to assisting over 1,800 families at its facility each month, CFB reaches out to provide food to over 22 community agencies.
