Hunger Awareness Week is about raising awareness of the solvable problem of hunger in Canada. Food banks across the country hold events to tell the story of the work we do and the stories of hungry Canadians assisted by food banks.
The Golden Food Bank, Food Banks Canada and food banks right across the country are asking all Canadians to mark Hunger Awareness Week - to make a positive impact on the issue of hunger across the country.
On Thursday, September 24th at 7:30 pm the Golden Food Bank will host a fund/food raising event at St. Andrew's United Church & Centre for Peace. We will be sharing with you a documentary on food waste which helps put into perspective the issue of food waste in North America.
You can check out the trailer and join our event on Facebook for more info!
Admission is by donation, food or cash donations accepted. All proceeds will go towards the Golden Food Bank's programming. Hope to see you there!
The Food Bank Garden at the Ruth Wixon property is proving bountiful once again this season! Come help us harvest veggies on Tuesday mornings from 9am until 11am or Thursday afternoons from 3pm until 5pm!
The harvest is upon us! Don't forget about our Plant a Row, Grow a Row Program! If you have any surplus vegetables from your garden you would like to share with our clients please stop by the food bank!
Donations can be dropped off Mondays through Thursdays from 9am - 4pm. If no one is there during these hours, we won't be gone for long! You can leave donations in the donation bin at the front door.
