The Board of Directors of the Georgetown Bread Basket Food Bank would like to send out a big THANK YOU to the community for an overwhelmingly generous response to support the food bank this past holiday season and throughout the past year.
Local support from individuals, churches, schools, major area corporations, local businesses, lodges, community groups, clubs and associations were key to our ability to achieve a record breaking volume of donated food, gift cards and funds this past December.
Halton Police Services organized "Cram a Cruiser" food drive allowing the community to donate over 9,000 pounds of food, surpassing last year's collection, along with $ 1000 in grocery gift cards. This was just one of many food drives and events over the holiday season that allowed the food bank to assist our clients and build a reserve of food for the coming months.
We would also like to recognize and thank our local grocery stores (Food Basics, Fresh Co, Metro, Superstore, and Walmart) who allow us to pick up your donations biweekly from the GBB food donation bins throughout the year, which is our main source of food.
Happy New Year!
