Foodbank thanks community for donations

OHSWEKEN – Six Nations Community Food Bank wants to thank Jukasa Radio and the community for the donations given at last week’s community barbecue.

Community members were asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the barbecue to pay for their food and be given a chance to win a door-prize at the event. All donations went to the food bank.

“I want to thank the community for their continued support and thank Jukasa for having us at their community awareness week event,” said Ellen-Rose Jamieson, “We got a lot of donations.”

Jamieson is the community food bank’s new co-ordinator, having replaced Charley Hill at the end of April.

Jamieson would like to give the community a friendly reminder that the food bank is unable to accept expired items of any kind — food, hygienic, etc.

“We can’t accept them,” she said “If people could check the dates before donating them that would be great.”

Despite the construction on Fourth Line, the food bank will still be open throughout the week accepting donations and food services are also still taking place on Thursdays 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
