New Food Bank Opens in Ingersoll


 Operation Sharing of Woodstock has opened a new food program in the town of Ingersoll in order to help those in that community who are having difficulty maintaining food on their tables during this recession.
 The new ‘Food for Friends” program was launched this week and will now make it easier for people to get the things they need versus collecting canned goods from the food bank. People will be given a ‘card” similar to a debit card that they will be able to use to pay for groceries that they require.
The program was kickstarted at Ingersolls’ “Meeting Place” and is being funded through local donations from retailers and people. 
 Hurleys’ Independent grocer and the Giant Tiger store in Ingersoll are both accepting donations for this great project. 
 Kudos to Shelly Trafford the co-ordinator of Ingersolls’ Meeting Place and Woodstocks’ Stephen Giuliano, founder of Operation Sharing for setting in motion this great way of ensuring that all have enough to eat.

    This new food assistance program is an excellent idea. It looks like it may be the start of something that will hopefully catch on. I think it is wonderful that people continue to be so caring during a big economic downturn.
