It’s not Christmas, it’s not Easter, or any other big holiday, but people reliant on regional food banks still need to eat.
The Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank like most other food banks often run very short on food staples.
There was some relief provided today, as the Hespeler Optimist Club purchased a $1,000 worth of food and donated that to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank.
The Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank offers food and support to people and community groups in need within Cambridge and North Dumfries, and they encourage self-reliance through programs and services.
The food bank is currently providing over 1,600 food hampers per month as well as 21 community organizations receive food from our food bank.
Providing these services are hard to do when items in the food bank cupboards are so low.
The Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank give us a reminder that, “we have just started collecting backpacks, lunch bags and school supplies for this falls school year. All donations can be dropped off at the Food Bank or call for pick-ups.”
