An excellent article on Weston food bank

Aaron D’Andrea wrote an excellent article for InsideToronto on the tiny Weston food bank. It’s well worth a read.

“When I started here, if we had 40 or 50 households, that was a busy morning,” Roberts said. “Now, we can go anywhere up to 80 or 100.”

The food bank, located in the back of the Frontlines building at 1844 Weston Rd. near Lawrence Avenue West, is only open for clients on Tuesdays during the summer (July and August), but its volunteers, mostly from Toronto’s Weston neighbourhood, come in throughout the week to help out.

The VCCU is accepting donations for the food bank, should you feel inclined to help.

The Victory Community Credit Union is raising money for the Weston Food Bank, whose “cupboards are bare”, according to the VCCU.

You can stop by the VCCU with non-perishables or to donate cash (and may I suggest cash, so the food bank can match hotdogs with buns?).
