Newark Neighbours and the Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club are teaming up again for a porch pick-up food drive.

We were so grateful for the tremendous community support of our food drive held last May – it was overwhelming. Thank you all very much.

After a successful food drive in May, "We’re asking for your support once again, this time to assist us in filling our Thanksgiving hampers for our clients," said food bank manager Cindy Grant.

On Saturday, Sept. 25, teams of volunteers will pick up food donations between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Everyone will wear masks and gloves, and will respect all physical distancing restrictions, including contactless pick-up, Grant said.

To arrange a donation, call the food bank at 905-468-7498 or email newarkneighbours1@gmail.com to register your address for pick-up.

Items required for the Thanksgiving hampers include stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, canned ham, gravy, corn, green beans, fruit, peas, salmon, baked beans, chili, spaghetti or ravioli, oatmeal, granola bars, Kraft Dinner and Mr. Noodle, cookies ketchup and other condiments, paper towels and tissues.
