The Heritage Green Food Bank may have had a slow start when it first opened almost a year ago in June 2014.
But Neighbour to Neighbour officials were correct in predicting a demand for its services when they organized the satellite food bank in upper Stoney Creek at the Heritage Green Baptist Church on Paramount Drive.
Food Services Manager Mark Raymond said 72 families used the food bank during the six months it was open last year.
“Folks in upper Stoney Creek have been very supportive of our efforts to serve people in their neighbourhood,” Raymond stated.
After holding two food drives in 2014, the community raised 1,834 pounds of donations, he said.
