Community support means there’s enough for everyone to eat in Enderby.
About 58 homes or 120 individuals received assistance from the Feed Enderby and District Food Bank in April.
“We continue to find ourselves successful with providing food and receiving donations of food and funds,” said Scott Hemenway, Feed Enderby chairperson.
“The community has been very generous.”
A resident recently donated $1,000 for fruit and vegetables, and a farmer provided 100 pounds of hamburger.
“We are giving out 8.5 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables per person and we’ve been able to secure enough meat to give one to two packages per person,” said Hemenway.
The Enderby Lions have also come on board by ensuring a dedicated phone line for the food bank.
“The community has really backed this effort and the volunteers are great,” said Hemenway.
Hampers are available once a month at St. George’s United Church.
