Shoppers and volunteers were happy to see the SD&G OPP Auxiliary Unit at the doors of Mike Deans ‑ Chesterville, Laura’s ValuMart‑ Morrisburg, and Winchester Foodland – Winchester, on Saturday November 13.
The OPP Auxiliary officers and Community Food Share volunteers received a total of 3,495 pounds of non perishable food and $2,042.00.
Much gratitude to our local grocery stores, Mike Dean’s Local Grocer, Laura’s Valu‑Mart, and Winchester Foodland for their amazing support in making this annual event such an amazing success!
Without the generous and continued support of local shoppers, volunteers onsite, couriers, sorters, and people weighing the donations, this event would not be the remarkable event that it is.
On behalf of residents facing food insecurity, thank you.
