The following local food banks are in need of your help: Grimsby Benevolent Fund Food Bank, Community Care of West Niagara in Beamsville, Community Outreach in Fort Erie, The Hope Centre in Welland, Project Share in Niagara Falls and Community Care in St. Catharines & Thorold, Pelham Cares in Fonthill and the Port Cares Reach Out Food Centre in Port Colborne.

To help, please go through your cupboards and bring a non-perishable item or two from the list below to our December Christmas Meeting on Friday, December 12th at 7:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion in Fonthill.
