What is the minimum donation?
Minimum donation is one. One of anything! Of course, it’s easier for the agency distributing the food if you have more, like if you have a dozen tomatoes, or a bag or two of beans in excess, and you won’t eat them. But truly, they’ll be glad to get just one, if that’s what you’ve got.

Where do I take my donation?
Monday to Thursday, 8:30am – 4:30pm, donations can be dropped of at Community Connections main office, located at 314 Second St East.

Friday, 8:30am – 11:00am, donations can be dropped off at the Food Bank, located downstairs at the Legion, 600 First St West.

 

What’s needed?

  • Root vegetables, like carrots, turnips and parsnips
  • Broccoli, cabbage
  • Peas, beans, tomatoes
  • Radishes, sweet peppers, summer squash

How do I prepare my donation?
