N.S. food bank re­quests help

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

NORTH SYDNEY, N.S. — The North Sydney Food Bank has en­listed the help of Feed Nova Sco­tia to dis­trib­ute more than $100,000 worth of prod­ucts from Kraft Heinz across the province.

As part of the Kraft Heinz Project Play pro­gram that re­cently saw Munro Park in North Sydney re­ceive $150,000 in im­prove­ments for a soc­cer field, Kraft Heinz also of­fered the North Sydney Food Bank more than 8,000 cases of dif­fer­ent prod­ucts rang­ing from over 250 cases of mir­a­cle whip to 2,500 cases of Kraft cheese. Al­though the food bank was over­whelmed with grat­i­tude, the co-chair of the North Sydney Food Bank, Lawrence She­bib, said there was sim­ply too much prod­uct for them to han­dle alone.

There are 16 food banks on Cape Bre­ton Is­land, but She­bib said the do­na­tion from Kraft Heinz was still too much food.

The prob­lem was that prod­ucts like cheese had to be re­frig­er­ated and Cape Bre­ton food banks don’t have the space. She­bib said that’s when he thought Feed Nova Sco­tia would be equipped to han­dle the mas­sive amount of prod­uct do­nated by Kraft Heinz.
