The Eckville Food Bank os seeing its shelves thin out and are looking for donations in this time of need.
Heather Allen, FCSS director, said although they will accept any donations she thinks it is important for people to know which items the food bank is short of to take in to consideration if they choose to donate.
At this time the food bank’s current needs are one litre juices, Sidekicks, small size cereal, crackers (soup or snack) and canned dinners such as stew, chili and pastas.
Additionally they could also use canned vegetables, canned meat, canned fruit and brown beans.
Allen says there has not been an increase in requests due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but the circumstances could change.
“I think it’s important at this time to remember that those who use the food bank on a regular basis will still need to,” said Allen in an email. “I think sometimes in a crisis situation these people get lost.”
She added it is always important to donate to the food bank, not just during crisis or holidays.
The Town Office is closed but donations can be dropped off in the foyer. Those looking for more information or wanting to leave a monetary donation can contact FCSS at 403-746-2171.
