Please help stock the food bank shelves for Christmas

There are many people coming to the food bank every Tuesday, representing 300-400 people


Please help stock the shelves for Christmas and January. This is a lean time for the Ladysmith  Food Bank.

There are many people coming to the food bank every Tuesday, representing 300-400 people, some singles, some parents — like the father with his six-year-old son or the mother carrying her one-year-old boy.

You can help by donating at one of the local churches or by adding some items to the boxes at the Save-On-Foods or the 49th Parallel Grocery stores.

You could drop off a bag of non-perishable food or write a cheque to the Ladysmith Food Bank and hand it in to the Ladysmith Resources Centre.

Did you know that the purchasing power of a money donation is three times the value of packaged food gifts? Yes! The buyers get large lots and buy on special sales so the money you give goes a long way.

Many coming to the Ladysmith Food Bank offer help to others in some way

One senior woman brings herbs and vegetables from her garden as her way of paying back.

One woman has helped on the committee working for homeless people.

Some young men help by carrying groceries for seniors.
