Ensuring that families using the Dundas County Food Bank can meet the needs of their babies, is made a little easier with the support of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada.
Each year, officials from the Dundas County Food Bank and the South Dundas Evangelical Lutheran Parish work together to apply for the grant which is the main source of funding the food bank’s newborn necessities.
This year, the local food bank received a cheque for $2,000.
“This grant means an awful lot to us,” said Donna Quesnel, administrator for the Dundas County Food Bank. Because of this grant, the food bank is able to ensure the baby needs shelf is always stocked with diapers, formula, baby food and cereal.
The food bank has been a successful recipient of this pivotal grant for more than five years.
