Wawa Community Food Bank – Summer 2016 Part 2


The Wawa Community Food Bank has an abundance of thanks to offer community members, businesses and organisations. Donations in many forms have been gratefully received including canned goods and practical items, gift cards and even boards cut to measure for plots at the Community Garden.

The volunteers sincerely thank Home Building Centre, Tim Horton’s, Norma Kauk, Barb Kraan, Lynn Lavigne and the Wawa Music Festival, Anne Owen and St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Joey Ralph, and Susan and Terry Switzer. 

Calvary Church once again delivered quantities of needed basic supplies. Additionally, an anonymous donor left many boxes in the main entry of the EDC. Please let us know who you are so we can send a personal thank you.

Rob Ingram of Desbarats Farmer’s Market has contributed fresh produce.

Kjell Klockars has donated the canned goods acquired from house concerts at his home.

SUBWAY and ValuMart continue as valued sponsors, helping us in many ways.

Tamarack Camp on Kabenung Lake provided us with their end of season stock of non-perishables.

Many thanks as well to Wawa Salmon Derby officials and to participants who donated salmon and lake trout for our patrons. This fresh fish is a highly prized and rare addition to the diets of those we assist.

Thank you to all of the above for the creative and generous support.

A special thank you is for Cindy Szekely for her determined and solo effort at building, planting and harvesting garden plots for Food Bank use.

Wawa Family Health Team continues to provide valuable services at the Wawa Community Food Bank site. Our clients are very fortunate to receive regular diabetes testing and information from Renee Mellish and social work intervention and counselling from Laurie Cavan. This fall we look forward to the addition of a nursing clinic to further attend to the health needs of vulnerable people.

It is only with the support of the community that the Wawa Community Food Bank can continue to deliver healthy food choices to those in need.
