South Grenville Food Bank is here for you!
The South Grenville Food Bank, Windmill Brewery, Prescott Legion and King’s Kitchen have teamed up to deliver home-cooked meals every Wednesday during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was launched to great success on April 8, 2020. If you would like to receive a delivery, please call 613-925-2444 (ext. 1).
Whether you are a registered client or find yourself in temporary need, the South Grenville Food Bank is here to help.
Well done to the organizers and to everyone who contributed to our Special Food Bank Collection on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
There were 9 drop-off locations: Prescott Fire Hall parking lot, O’Reilly’s Your Independent Grocer parking lot, North Augusta Fire Hall parking lot, Maitland Fire Hall parking lot, Cardinal Fire Hall parking lot, Spencerville Fire Hall parking lot, Johnstown Community Centre parking lot, Maynard Ball Diamond and Domville Ball Diamond. It was amazing to see our communities finding ways to come together and support each other during these difficult times. Here’s the video and a few photos:
The South Grenville Food Bank provides assistance to residents of Prescott, Augusta and Edwardsburgh Cardinal. During this pandemic, we are in even greater need!
In 2019, 1034 residents signed on as clients to receive our services (and many use us on a monthly basis). About 40% of these are children.
The beginning of each month is always our busiest time and with COVID-19, we anticipate being even busier this coming month (and possibly many to follow).
We are requesting your help. We need an increase in funding to purchase perishable food and/or donations of canned goods to help us with increased costs.
Toilet paper and other household items are also appreciated.
You can drop off items at the Cardinal location (Wednesdays from 10 AM to 2 PM in the basement of the Library); or Prescott (Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM, 136 Henry Street West).
If you are able to donate, please mail a cheque to South Grenville Food Bank, P.O. Box 1692, Prescott, Ontario, K0E 1T0. If you prefer to e-transfer, please use firstname.lastname@example.org or click CanadaHelps to donate online.
