Parker Street Food Bank – Emergency Fund

logo_parker-street

So much more than a food bank, Parker Street provides a whole range of services to those who are struggling to provide for themselves and their families.

Ascribing to the ‘teach a man to fish’ philosophy, the Parker Street Food & Furniture Bank offers much more than food and furniture, meeting the needs of those facing poverty or unexpected hard times in a range of ways, including skills training to help them get a job so they can get back on their feet.

We were honoured to provide $10,000 to their emergency fund, which helps meet unexpected needs of families in need such as heating oil, prescriptions or school supplies. We commend the staff and volunteers for their valuable contribution to the community, and the safety net they are providing for those less fortunate.
