We're not fighting each other, 
we're fighting hunger!

There are nearly 30 000 people in our region who use the Food Bank every year. One of the best, and most simple ways we can all help make this community stronger is to rally together and ensure those neighbours have access to this most basic necessity: food.

Our family is adding our muscle to the fight and putting it out to everyone we know.

We're also keeping our eyes peeled for great deals at the grocery store, and stocking up! 

AND, we'll cheering on Carl Zehr and Brenda Halloran as they step into the ring October 4, 2:30pm at the Arnie Boehm Training Centre (Activa Sportsplex) to see who's got what it takes to rally the forces and win The Great Canadian Food Fight.
