Thank you Enderby

The Feed Enderby and District Food Bank board and volunteers want to extend its heartfelt thanks

The Feed Enderby and District Food Bank board and volunteers want to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many individuals, businesses and community groups that have been so generous since the new food bank formed two months ago.

Your donations of money and food enabled FED to carry through with November’s regular food hamper, distribute 127 Christmas hampers in December and provide more food hampers this month. Extra donations of gifts, pajamas and turkeys made the holiday hampers extra special.

FED’s primary goal is to help people in need by ensuring Enderby continues to have a regular food hamper program. As a grassroots initiative, FED also aims to foster positive relationships in the community and provide people with connections to social and health services.

FED is overwhelmed by the community support shown to date and we acknowledge that such support is crucial to our sustainability.

As such, we look forward to strengthening our role in the community and we encourage the community’s continued support for this important service.

Scott Hemenway, chairperson

Feed Enderby and District Food Bank
