Giant Tiger assists food bank
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.
