King Township Food Bank Centres Open This Saturday

This Saturday, March 16th, the three Distribution Centres are open from 9-11 am to serve Food Bank registrants. If you need help, please call ahead 905-806-1125 or ktfoodbank@gmail.com so food can be shipped to the appropriate centre in the right quantity for you.

Again, the monthly distribution will have donated produce from Hillside Gardens, along with extra treats from Tim Hortons Schomberg.

Remember the Schomberg Beer Store pop up one day bottle drive?  It was launched by two of the store staff, looking to help the Food Bank.   A cheque arrived from the corporate head office for $500, boosting the results of the already impressive campaign to nearly $850! 

King City Firefighters Association continues to heavily support the Food Bank, with a cheque for $1500 presented last week.  Thanks to this amazing group of 50 volunteers who are so very community minded.
