The food bank is a place that many families turn to when they are in need, and now the food bank is in need, and it is turning to you, Drumheller.
"It has been a long winter for the food bank. Things are really steady, and it is not slowing down any," said Jennifer Hillier, captain of the Salvation Army in Drumheller.
The food bank did quite a few Christmas hampers this year, and went through the food from the red bag food drive pretty quickly, advised Hillier. She also says that this is usually the time of year that they are making food purchases. Their shelves are pretty bare at the moment and they are in need a quite a few items.
"Peanut Butter, pork and beans, school snacks, tomato and pasta sauce, soup crackers, kraft dinner, ichiban noodles, hamburger helper, sidekicks; I think a lot of our stock right now is really low," explained Hillier.
A full list of the items can be found on their website.
The Food Bank still has the donation boxes up at Wal-mart, Extra Foods, and Freson Bros, and anything that is dropped off in those boxes is picked up twice a week.
"Christmas is that time where people seem to really reach out and want to give but it has been a long cold winter, it has been tough for a lot of people; there are a lot of families in our community that need help year-round and we want to be able to do that with the help of the community behind us," said Hiller.
