The demand for food donations this year will likely be greater than ever.

During the holidays, most people are in a very giving mood but when the new year rolls around, donations usually slow down to a crawl.

Local charities, such as food banks, have struggled to keep up with a strong demand that has continued to increase since the beginning of the pandemic.

To make matters worse, collecting food donations has been a real challenge since their usual fundraising events had to be postponed.

On top of that, food prices are expected to rise by around 7% in 2022 according to Canada's Food Price Report which means that even more people will have to rely on food banks this year.

There are so many people in our area who struggle to afford nutritious meals during these difficult times which is why our food banks are in desperate need of non-perishable food donations along with diapers, toiletries and cleaning supplies.
 
In addition to food and toiletries, financial donations are especially important as they give food banks the flexibility to buy fresh food or to load up on items that are in short supply.
 
So many different businesses and individuals in our area have stepped up to help those in need. Food banks will face significant challenges this winter so let’s continue to support the incredible work they and others do for our community.
