A drop in donations over the summer months has The Brantford Food Bank making an appeal to the community. The food bank is in need of monetary donations, as well as perishable and non perishable food items.
Executive Director, Heather Vanner, says thoughts of help are common when the weather gets colder, however their operations remain the same year-round.
“Through the summer, the need doesn’t change. The numbers stay the same. We still have over one-thousand households each month needing to use the food bank.”
Vanner adds, it’s sometimes a challenge to ensure they always have enough on hand to help those dropping in get through an emergency situation.
