Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette recently presented cheques to two local food banks on behalf of the Town.
This week, Mayor Bonnette presented cheques for $920 to Donna Baker, chair of the Georgetown Bread Basket and Councillor Mike Albano for the Acton Food Share.
The Georgetown Bread Basket (GBB) began in 1996 and is a non-profit, charitable organization, which prides itself in relieving hunger for all neighbours in need as well as providing and promoting access to nutritious food.
The Acton Foodshare was started in 1991 by several concerned citizens and helps to alleviate hunger and prevent malnutrition for those who are in temporary need of assistance.
Throughout the pandemic, local food shelters encouraged donations from those who were able to do so, as many people were struggling to provide basic needs for their families. Currently, organizations such as the GBB and Acton Foodshare continue to seek help from those who are in a position to donate.
