Do you know what time of year it is? Yes, it’s the middle of August, and the Barrie Real Estate market is slowing down only slightly. Lots of families are heading out on their last vacation of the season. Students are finishing up jobs before heading back to University or College. The Olympics are almost over. It’s also a critical time at our Barrie Food Bank.I love getting little reminders on Rock95. Like many other people, I do my groceries every week and life goes on as it normally does. Once in a while I’ll grab an extra jar of peanut butter and pop it into the Food Bank bin on my way out. But guess what? They need more than the occasional jar of peanut butter and right now the cupboards are fairly bare.
Summers are hard for those who rely on the Food Bank. Kids are home full time and don’t have the benefit of breakfast programs at school. They all need our help. Why not jot down a few items and pick up some grocery extras when you’re out and about this weekend? According to their website, the most needed items right now are:
-powdered skim milk
-toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, shampoo, etc)
-lunch snacks and juice boxes
It only takes a moment and a few dollars, but think of how much good it does! It takes a community…
