The SD & G OPP Auxiliary Unit held their Annual “Stuff a Cruiser with Food Drive” on Saturday, November 14. OPP Auxiliary officers and volunteers from Community Food Share Winchester and Morrisburg collected food packages from people at Laura’s Valu-Mart in Morrisburg, the Foodland in Winchester, and Mike Deans in Chesterville. At the Foodland in Winchester Auxiliary OPP Constable L Brelsford, John Legate, and other volunteers collected bags of food in a red pickup truck. People could buy the bags of food for $5, $10, or $20 inside the store. The pre-packaged bags of food allowed for generous donations, while limiting the Covid-19 risks.
Food donated will help support Community Foodshare in Dundas County. If you, or someone you know, is in need of food, call and leave a message at one of the Community Foodshare Foodbank locations, and someone will return your call to set up an appointment. Call Winchester 613-774-0188, or Morrisburg 613-543-0065. You can also email them at email@example.com, or complete a form at www.communityfoodshare.ca.
There are four Community Foodshare locations in Stormont and Dundas Counties: Winchester, Morrisburg, Crysler, and Finch.
