Food drive a suc­cess

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

More than 40,000 pounds of food was col­lected in the Thanks 4 Giv­ing Mu­nic­i­pal Food Drive. That sur­passes the col­lec­tion goal by more than 10,000 pounds. The an­nual drive ran through­out Oc­to­ber. Fresh, frozen and non­per­ish­able food was do­nated by the com­mu­nity through in­di­vid­ual, cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity group con­tri­bu­tions and food drives. The do­na­tions will help the food bank pro­vide emer­gency as­sis­tance to an av­er­age of 2,300 in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing sin­gles, fam­i­lies, chil­dren and se­niors, each month. Do­na­tions are al­ways needed and can be dropped off at lo­cal gro­cery stores and at the Brantford food bank, 1100 Clarence St. S.
