Brockville – On the heels of the success of the first Brockville Community Strong Food Drive held in April, the second one was held in the city this past Saturday and once again was a success.
Benefiting both Loaves & Fishes and the Brockville & Area Food Bank, it is a partnership between the City of Brockville and the Brockville Winter Classic.
Saturday’s food drive, despite the more like fall weather in spring, saw many people come out to donate to the cause. People were asked to leave their donation of food at the end of their driveways.
Once again there were two routes, this time both routes were south of Highway 401, one in the east and one in the west.
Organizers say that although the total was less than the first food drive, they were still happy with the Saturday’s food drive.
