January Update

Posted in: Latest News | 0

This Saturday, January 20th the King Township Food Bank’s three Distribution Centres will be open to those who are registered from 9-11. If you aren’t registered, you need to call the Food Bank at 905-806-1125 or email ktfoodbank@gmail.com in order that food can be shipped to the appropriate centre for you.

From noon until 2 p.m. the same day, there will be a Pop Up Clothing Giveaway, offering seasonal clothing for all ages.

After the bounty of the season, the Food Bank now finds itself in a happy financial position heading into 2018. A donation of $2500 from Tim Horton King City, and recent donations from private foundations totalling nearly $20,000 has added significantly to the bank balance. Part of the funds will be used to expand the produce offering, especially for the winter months.

Hillside Gardens continues to offer root vegetables for all three centres, and the Food Bank is grateful for their support. And Dorio’s Bakery provides their home made style breads… a treat not part of the Food Bank budget.

Words cannot express the gratitude the Food Bank feels for the food and funds that provide sustainability. It truly is a community food bank, and this generosity is interpreted by the volunteers as validation of the service they perform for those struggling with difficult times.
