From May 2nd to 9th, food banks across Canada are coming together to participate in the Every Plate Full Food Drive.
The goal of the campaign is to fill the empty plates of Canadians in need this summer.
As part of this campaign, the Dundas County Food Bank is organizing a county-wide community food drive.
“It’s always difficult for us at this time of year to keep up with demand for our services,” said Ian McKelvie, DCFB Administrator.
“By participating in this national campaign, we’re hoping the community will come together to make a difference and help us stock our shelves so that none of our neighbours go hungry this summer.”
The Every Plate Full Food Drive will take place on Saturday, May 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Andy’s Foodland in Winchester, Giant Tiger in Morrisburg and Iroquois Foodland.
Another food drive will take place on Saturday, May 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Riley’s Valu-mart in Morrisburg.
