"Giving Back" to the Food Bank

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have  lit the flame within us" - Melinda Harris, Grocery Manager.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to our community. Thanks to the generosity of our staff, members, and customers during our recent Holiday Food Drive we collected:

221 cans of corn

209 1L Apple Juice

400 boxes of Kraft Dinner

221 cans of flaked ham

222 boxes of snack crackers

217 boxes of jello

65 boxes of Stove Top Stuffing

600+ cans of soup

All of these items were donated to the Food Bank to help rekindle the spark during this holiday season.

This year we were pleased to provide fuel and fertilizer for the Soybean Crop Fundraiser spearheaded by Don Dewar to add much needed funds to the Dauphin & District Food Bank and the Dauphin Friendship Centre Food for Thought Program. It was wonderful to join together with so many other community partners to support Don's goal of giving back.
