Weston food bank’s cupboards are bare

The Weston food bank is feeling a little pinched, according to InsideToronto.

A spokesperson for the Weston Road and King Street-area community centre, Ken Theobald, says that its charitable food sources, such as Second Harvest and the Daily Bread Food Bank, are under an increased demand and so “the dollars we do have aren’t going as far as they used to.”

At the same time, he added, the number of residents who are reliant on its drop-in breakfast, lunch, and community dinners are steadily increasing from about 65 to 100 people daily.
