Food bank almost ready for moving day

Moving day is approaching for the Dundas County Food Bank.

About 14 months after planning began to move the Morrisburg location of the Dundas County Food Bank into a new home just down the street, officials are happy to announce that the move will take place May 22 and 23. The Dundas County Food Bank will open in its new location May 25.

The new food bank will be in a portion of the fully renovated former library location at the Morrisburg arena.

The move won’t disrupt any food bank service, as the food bank closes at 3 p.m. on the Thursday in the old location and will open, no matter what, in the new location at 10 a.m. the following Monday.

A small group of volunteers has been working to assemble and arrange the shelving that will house donated food items.

Jim Millard, of the DCFB said that the location has more than enough shelving, as they had purchased some when Zellers was closing. In addition to that shelving, the library donated surplus shelving, tables and chairs to the food bank for its new home. 

Millard estimates that about 30 to 40 people have made themselves available to help with the move. Those volunteers will include Royal Bank staffers, student volunteers and regular food bank volunteers.
