During this festive time of year it’s important to remember that not everyone is gifted with a wonderful bounty of food and gifts. In fact, people struggle just as hard, if not harder, during the holidays as they do the rest of the year.
The Guelph Food Bank is one of numerous organizations in the Royal City that aims to help those that need a hand, offering a monthly hamper of groceries, as well as other services, to those who struggle to make ends meet when a weekly salary, or lack of salary, just can’t cover all the necessities. In this edition of the Guelph Politicast, we pay tribute to the hard workers of the Guelph Food Bank, who do their part year around to address the enormous wealth disparity in our society.
At the Guelph Food Bank recently, I talked to Tracy Marchesich, the Community Liaison Facilitator. In our conversation, Tracy and I discussed the history of the Food Bank, the still growing need for its services, the stories of hope and reasons why there’s still that tremendous need, and how and where you can help out and get involved with the Food Bank this holiday season.
