The Glengarry News - - News -

Gi­ant Tiger Alexan­dria has made a $1,750 gift card do­na­tion to the St-Vin­cent-de-Paul So­ci­ety.

“The hol­i­day sea­son is a par­tic­u­larly busy time of year for the food bank. At Gi­ant Tiger we are com­mit­ted to mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­ni­ties en­sur­ing that fam­i­lies in need get the sup­port and ne­ces­si­ties they re­quire,” says store man­ager Ja­son Soucie. “We are proud of the part­ner­ship we have with our lo­cal food bank.”

Ac­cord­ing to Food Bank Canada, 13 per cent of Cana­di­ans live in a state of food uncer­tainty, which means they do not have de­pend­able ac­cess to ad­e­quate amounts of safe, nu­tri­tious food. Each month, over 850,000 peo­ple turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are chil­dren and youth.

This do­na­tion is part of a $35,250 com­mit­ment made by Gi­ant Tiger Stores to food banks in var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties across Canada.
