Our next Food Drive will be held Saturday October 15th, 2022, from 10 AM to 12 noon.
We realize not everyone can make it out to the food drive each month perhaps due to inclement weather, or other obligations. If you would still like to contribute, N2N accepts cash donations to buy meat, dairy and produce from local grocery stores and these stores often offer discounts to the N2N Food Centre so they can really stretch your donations.
You can donate cash by dropping an envelope marked “Chedoke Food Drive Neighbour 2 Neighbour” into the offering plate on Sunday or in the secure mailbox by the front doors of the church during the week. Etransfers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org labelled “Chedoke Food Drive N2N” in the note section.
We will also have hampers set out on Sundays so you may bring in your donations and drop them into the hampers to be added to our monthly Food Drive.
Of course, you can still drop by on Saturday October 15th where we will again have volunteers collecting non-perishable food and supplies for the local food bank. Please remember to enter from the west entrance and exit using the east entrance. This is a safe event that will be observing all current public health and safety precautions.
