Food banks across the country are trying to keep the doors open and the Englehart food bank is no exception.

There are a couple of issues effecting the Englehart food bank according to Vic Roach, the coordinator.

Food supply and keeping volunteers in place.

Cash donations would be the best because if you donate food there is no way of telling it’s not contaminated so this way it would be safe for everyone and that’s all we are really worried about”.

He says the average age of the volunteers is 74 and a lot are in isolation themselves right now.

The food bank is located on 5th Avenue, right behind the town hall and is open Fridays from 10-12.
