TARGET REACHED!! New Wheels, Bigger Impact
Like magic, we can turn this one-time $59,200 investment into over $250,000 worth of food annually. It's true!
We are thrilled to announce that this campaign has succeeded! Because of supporters like you, we've raised the funds for a much-needed cargo van that will significantly improve our ability to pick up and help distribute food to food insecure folks across Haliburton County and North Hastings regions in rural Ontario.
Last year, with an aging pick up truck, we managed to collect over 78,000 lbs of food donations, benefiting an estimated 1,000 people per month. With a cargo van, we know we can have an even greater impact.
With a proper cargo area to transport food safely and efficiently, we will be able to transport multiple pallets of food and personal care products, increasing the availability of essential supplies for food banks in our rural region.
The project is crucial as it fills a vital gap in our rural community - a reliable means to share and exchange food with neighbouring food banks so that we can all stock our shelves with diverse food options. It ensures that more food reaches at-risk individuals in our community and neighboring regions. Your support helps us continue our work effectively and broaden our impact in addressing food insecurity.
Thank you for helping us respond to the increasing needs in our community!
