After retiring from Hagersville High School, Janice was looking for her next goal. She saw a need for a food bank in Hagersville and worked to help get it started. In 2012 they had eight families as clients. This year they are helping 60 families, half of which are native from New Credit, Hagersville or Six Nations with an RR1 address.

This Christmas the Food Bank is providing Christmas hampers that contain provisions for the whole day from breakfast to the main course. This includes pancake mix, syrup, soup for lunch and a choice of a turkey or ham plus toys for the kids. Janice expressed all of this could not happen without the tremendous community support.

The Hagersville Food Bank has come up with specialized food drives such as a boxed cereal drive, paper products drive and a tuna and salmon drive provided by area churches. Lone Wolf Pit Stop would like to thank their customers for helping to support the Hagersville Food Bank. The money was raised from coffee sales at Townline Rd. location. For those who want to donate, their address is 5 Marathon St., 
Hagersville and the phone number is 289-758-3789.
