Food Drive For Manna on October 2nd

Posted: 2018-09-21 07:21:07 By: hbr

Preparations are underway for the annual Fall Food Drive for the Manna Food Bank, organized by the Muskoka Oldtimers Hockey Club.

This year it's Tuesday October 2nd and scores of Bracebridge school kids will cover as much of the town as they can in one evening, hurrying door-to-door collecting non-perishable food donations and cheques that residents leave in bags on the porch or on their doorstep. Once the vehicles are full or the route is finished — whichever comes first, they then make their way to the Bracebridge Fairgrounds where dozens more volunteers unpack and sort thousands of pounds of food in preparation for another winter.

The non-perishable food items that Manna needs most this year include;  

Canned: Fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, pasta sauce & baked beans, Rice and dry pasta, Crackers, Powdered milk, Baby formula, Sugar, Flour, Breakfast cereal, Peanut butter, School snacks and Macaroni & cheese

To keep the runners running, please bag your donation in advance and set it outside your door by 5pm.
