Foodbank and Community Trust Calling For Cottagers’ Unused Food to be Donated, Not Thrown Out

With some cottagers using the upcoming long weekend as a chance to close up shop until next summer, the foodbank is called for any unused food to be donated, not thrown away.

North Hastings Community Cupboard’s Coordinator Cindy Shields says non-perishable food or cash donations are always welcome. She says they are most in need of things like peanut butter, canned fruit, vegetables and meat and tuna right now. Shields adds that you could also donate unused hygiene products like toothpaste.

“We will have a box out front on our porch to accept these items,” Shields explains. She says that way it allows for cottagers or residents to drop off donations at any time. It will be checked often, including on weekends.

North Hastings Community Trust is also open to taking any unused food from cottagers. They say on Facebook that they are looking for canned, dried, frozen food and fresh vegetables for their food program.

The Community Cupboard is located on 2 Madawaska Street, while Community Trust is at 23B Bridge Street West.
