Elliot Lake Emergency Food Bank Christmas Hamper Program
This year the directors of the Elliot Lake Emergency Food Bank made the difficult decision to cancel the annual Christmas hamper that was distributed to anyone who registered. While the Foodbank recognizes the difficulty this might place on some, our main concern must be first and foremost to the 200 families and other agencies that we serve every month to fulfill our Mission “To Feed the Hungry”.
This year our clients will receive a Christmas Bag(s) depending on the size of the family that will contain the food products to make a Christmas Dinner.
The rising cost of food, and the supply chain issues that sometimes makes it hard to get food product all contributed to the way we changed so that our clients can have a bit of Christmas cheer.
We as a Board have the obligation and the responsibility to ensure that we are financially sound and are able to provide continuous care to our clients who depend on us, not just at Christmas, but throughout the coming years ahead.
