At our Annual Holiday Food Drive & Mixer. Where we will Meet, Mix and be Merry!

This year we will be accepting non perishable Food donations & Cash donations for The House of Blessing & The Local Community Food Centre.
Did you know when you donate cash it creates more of an impact. $10 might get you a couple of canned goods and boxes of pasta at the store, but food banks can make that $10 go exponentially further. Different companies, including wholesalers, supermarkets and farmers, donate their surplus to food banks for the cost of around 20 cents per pound.
“It includes not just the typical shelf stable, canned foods that we think of when we donate to a canned food drive, but it can also include fresh fruits and vegetables,” she said. “[It’s] nutritious food that for whatever reason can’t be used at the store, at the restaurant or at the supplier, but can be nutritious food for a family in your community who doesn’t know where the next meal is going to come from.”
