The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Food banks in Hamil­ton

Re­cent re­ports have an­nounced the open­ing a food bank to ac­com­mo­date peo­ple liv­ing in the east Hamil­ton and Stoney Creek as far as Gray Road.

For the record, The Stoney Creek Com­mu­nity Food Bank serves the peo­ple of Stoney Creek and has done so since 1992.

The very gen­er­ous Stoney Creek busi­nesses, churches, schools, ser­vice clubs and in­di­vid­u­als have been fan­tas­tic spon­sors who en­able us to con­tinue to run the food bank. The Stoney Creek Food Bank has all vol­un­teers and serves about 700 adults and chil­dren each month. With­out the sup­port of our com­mu­nity we will not be able to con­tinue to serve the need in Stoney Creek.

Any­one with a Stoney Creek ad­dress in­clud­ing res­i­dents on the Moun­tain and from Cen­ten­nial Park­way at King Street to Queen­ston Road and Gray Road at Bar­ton along to Fifty Road who re­quire as­sis­tance are wel­come. Mone­tary and non-per­ish­able, un­ex­pired, un­opened do­na­tions are ac­cepted at 605 Hwy. 8, rear en­trance (be­tween De­witt and Fruit­land Roads) Mon­days, Wed­nes­days, and Thurs­days, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wilf Rogers, Chair, Stoney Creek Com­mu­nity Food Bank
