The Espanola Lions Club together with volunteers from the Helping Hand Food Bank and Espanola Minor Soccer League hold a Food Drive at the 3 grocery stores in town; Giant Tiger, FreshCo and Tanner’s Your Independent Grocer.
Last year the drive collected approximately 2600 food items and $900 in cash and gift cards.
This year the drive will take place on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 1 – 7 PM.
Customers are greeted with a menu of current food bank needs and we ask them to shop for the food bank as they are doing their family shopping.
Collected groceries will be stored and off loaded at the Food Bank.
The Espanola Helping Hand Food Bank is located at 87 Centre Street and is open Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. They can be reached at 705-583-3045 or firstname.lastname@example.org
