“We had about fifty families this morning, so, again, our shelves are bare…”
Although Food Bank Sunday is typically held on the third Sunday of the month, the holiday schedule and recent cancellations meant that many of us were unable to bring our offerings of non-perishable food items last Sunday.
We will have a special Food Bank Sunday this Sunday, January 22. We are asked to bring our offerings of non-perishable food items (or consider a monetary contribution to the food bank) to help meet the immediate needs of our neighbours and friends, even as we continue to address the underlying injustices that lead to long-term food insecurity.
Of particular need this month are:
Peanut Butter/Wow Butter
cans of fruit
cans of vegetables
decaf coffee/tea bags
little fruit cups
little packages of Cheese and crackers
Stocks of cereal, tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and pasta are at acceptable levels.
Thank you for your help in addressing this urgent need.
