The Vaughan Food Bank would like to thank St. James Catholic Elementary School in Maple for their continued support with their yearly Lenten Food Drive. They have just ended their 6th annual Lenten Food Drive with a total of 10 barrels collected. The students and staff are to be commended for their tremendous efforts!
Since 2003 we have worked with the St. James School Council in organizing the Lenten Food Drive. Their food drives have been successful every year and we appreciate their continued support. St. James was the only elementary school in Maple to hold a food drive during this time period. We encourage other schools within our area to also contribute to our community food bank.
Many families and individuals in Vaughan use the Vaughan Food Bank, because no one in our community should go hungry.
If you are interested in holding a food drive the Vaughan Food Bank will be happy to supply you with barrels, posters and pick up of donations.Please contact Peter Wixson of the Vaughan Food Bank at 905-851-2333 to arrange your next food drive with complete support.
