Feeding the hungry
– Foundation Feature December 20, 2011 courtesy of Swan Valley Star and Times –
The local Food Bank is especially busy this time of year with the numbers increasing almost daily. With support from the Community Foundation, the volunteers were able to purchase a much-needed, three-door cooler, almost at the same time the Winnipeg Harvest people donated 270 dozen eggs from the Manitoba Egg Producers.
Without the cooler, they could not have accepted this generous gift. The cooler is used for perishables that are regularly distributed among people needing a little help at this Yuletide Season and on into the winter months.
