St. James Food Basket

A New Van for the Food Basket!

donation of van to St James Foodbank
The Kiwanis Club of Kingsway Humber provided $10,000 towards a new vehicle for St. James Food Basket.   Other funding was provided by RBC and private donations.  The vehicle is needed to collect fresh vegetable and fruit from distributors along with donations from restaurants and outlets.     A group of volunteers work several days each week to make sure that the over 700 people seeking help on Wednesdays from St. James Food Basket are provided with food, clothing, hygiene items, counselling on employment, housing and medical needs, a hot meal once a week and gifts every Christmas.
