SIX NATIONS – Haldimand County Mayor Ken Hewitt (left) presented Ellen-Rose Jamieson (right) a cheque for $10,000 last week that will go towards purchasing items for the Six Nations Community Food Bank on Six Nations.

“I really want to thank Mayor Hewitt for this generous contribution and the continuous support the food bank and Six Nations receives from him,” said Jamieson.

The money was raised back in May at the Annual Mayor’s Gala. Several organizations in the Haldimand area received donations from money raised at the gala, but the food bank on Six Nations is always in need, so, the donation comes at a great time and is very much appreciated.

Along with dispersing personal items, the Food Bank runs a food service program every Thursday from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. There, community members can receive pantry staples such as pasta, beans, soup, canned vegetables, fruits, school snacks, and bread. To supplement the staples, the food bank also provides fresh items on a rotational basis each week including eggs, dairy, fresh vegetables and meat.

Any contribution or donation given to the food bank is appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed.

“We really try to make sure everybody knows how much we at the food bank appreciate the help,” said Jamieson.
