In early 2022, a working group of community members and business owners developed a plan to support local families in need by establishing a food bank in Creemore.
Managed by St. Luke’s Anglican Church Rev. Lorna May, partners include Sim Spry of Foodland, Linda deWinter of Creemore 100 Mile Store, John and Marie Miller of Miller’s Diary, Sandra Lackie, Joan Gordon and Sheila Koss.
May said she has become aware that the need for an enhanced support network is growing, and it is only exacerbated by housing costs, the price of gas and the ongoing impact of the pandemic. Transportation and hours of operation can be barriers to accessing the food bank in Stayner.
The food bank is housed at St. Luke’s Church and accepts monetary donations, food and household items.
Anyone with something to offer or anyone in need is encourage to call Lorna May (705-352-2759) or leave a message at the church (705-466-2206).
