Campus food bank looking for deposits

With more demand than usual this summer, supply is running low at the campus food bank, reports manager Sandi Rose.

“We’ve had a bit of a run on the bank,” she says. “We’re putting out a call for our generous donors to help out with some of the items we need most.”

She says those include: canned meats, vegetables, and fruits; chick peas and kidney beans; pasta and sauces; cereal; peanut butter; toiletries; notebooks and pens.

“We currently have an overabundance of soups and instant ramen noodles,” says Rose. “We are so grateful to our supporters, who make it possible for us to feed hungry students.”

Donations will be received at Canterbury College, 2500 University Avenue West, Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please make cheques payable to Iona College.
