Thanks go to our food donors – the approximately 4.7 tons that came in over the past two weeks have covered this coming Monday’s needs – items noted above are currently short for the following two weeks. We encourage volunteers, including student volunteers, who are essential to help sort, store and distribute all these donations.
With your help and theirs, we were able to distribute about 1.81 tons of non-perishable food, and a rather larger amount of perishable food (bread and pastries, fresh vegetables and fruit, etc. – primarily donated by local stores) to 186 families on Monday, 6 September, and a further 1.79 tons, plus perishable food, to 184 families on Monday 13 September. Thank you!
