The Knights of Columbus, Sacred Heart  are seen presenting a cheque for  $500, raised at their Lasagne Cookoff.

King Township Food Bank is grateful for the generous support from the Sacred Heart community; the church has been sending a monthly cheque for several years, making them a Founding Platinum Sponsor.

An interesting organization, the Knights of Columbus started way back in the days when husbands were the sole source of family income. The men of the church realized that wives and children were left without income, and possibly even destitute when the husband died. So they banded together to form a sort of ‘insurance’ to help. An early form of Food Bank, but likely much more than that.
