The Interfaith Food Bank is in need of donations. The food bank says they are running dangerously low on perishable items and are asking the public for help. Executive Director Danielle McIntyre says coming out of a very busy Christmas season, the food went out as quickly as it came in, and now they are not able to keep up with demand.
“We have often received financial donations that we would use to go out and buy more items for our food hampers. We primarily rely upon community donations as well as stuff that we pick up from the grocery stores that isn’t quite perfect in terms of the perishable items, which right now, because groceries are so very expensive, a lot of the grocers are able to sell that stuff, which means they don’t end up in our pile. So we are exceptionally low on perishable items and are really encouraging community members to help us out if they can,” said Danielle McIntyre, Executive Director, Interfaith Food Bank Society of Lethbridge.
Anyone who is interested in donating to the food bank can do by getting in touch with them directly.
