Edward, a single senior in our community, has been visiting his local food bank for about 15 years.
“Everyone at the food bank is so welcoming and kind, if it weren’t for them, I’d be in really bad shape. They will always give you something to eat, no matter who you are,” says Edward.
After visiting his neighbourhood food bank, Edward decided he would get involved as a volunteer, a meaningful way for him to give back to the community that’s supported him. “If it weren’t for volunteers and donors, we wouldn’t have food banks and people in our community would really struggle, especially seniors and families with children.
I’m so grateful for my local food bank, when I come here, I feel great.”
