The Food Bank will commence regular hours on Tuesday September 3rd.
We had another successful BBQ on the Saturday of the Chi-Cheemaun festival. Thank you to everyone who came by to get a hotdog and a drink. The generosity of the community and visitors was amazing. The generosity shown on that day and year-round helps us in our work of assisting those among us that face daily food security issues. Another expression of generosity is the proceeds from the Trivia Night at the Legion, as well as the total community support of individuals, organizations and Churches.
During the summer months, food donations can be dropped off at the Post Office. Always welcome are items such as Peanut Butter, Chunky style or any type of soup, and dry packaged pasta meals. Canned vegetables including potatoes are also needed.
If you have any questions regarding the food bank, please call Linda at 519-596-2333.
