The Community Development Council of Quinte’s food drive is starting on Mother’s Day.
The community organization works to make life more affordable for Hastings and Prince Edward County residents living on low incomes, helping them become self-sustainable. The food drive provides food for the Good Baby Box program, which offers baby supplies to parents at a reduced cost.
Program Coordinator Bev Heuving says the rising costs of everyday items are forcing many parents to turn to the CDCQ for assistance.
She says locally, baby food jars and cash donations can be dropped off at the North Hastings Community Cupboard from May 10 until Father’s Day on June 4. Bulk donations from businesses are also being accepted. We have more information on our website about how you can get involved.
