Millet Food Bank aided with Lions Club donation

Back to school means struggles for Millet Food Bank and families

The Millet and District Lions Club presented the Millet Community Food Bank with a cheque for $3,000, at their open house on August 25th, as part of the Harvest Festival activities.

At this time of the year donations are low, and we have had to purchase groceries several times over the summer. This donation comes at the right time to assist us with that. We can not say thank you enough to the Lions Club for their continued support. They have been a valuable partner in many of our food/fundraising efforts. We could not be as successful without them.

This is always a tough time for those in need, as summer is coming to an end, school is starting, and expenses increase. There is still a large percentage of our clients struggling with employment at this time.

We have been very lucky with a few community members donating fresh produce from their gardens, but our perishable foods deplete quickly trying to meet the demand. A big thank you goes out to Susan and Ross Brown and Gerald Delorme, who have generously shared their bountiful garden produce with us all summer, and who continue to do so throughout the harvest season.
