Virtual Thank You Bucks

To Rotarian Debra Swan and her team at the Local Community Food Centre. These are just some of the activities that she and her staff have been involved with this week to support our community during this crisis.
·         Monday we geared up for 100 and ran out of meals - scrounging in the freezer for the last half dozen or so portions.  Today we prepped for more, and I'm told we served 125 meals.
·         Breakfast burritos as takeaways on Fridays, as it has become evident that many of our patrons counted on the Friday cafe we held alongside the Friday market for their warm meal of the day.
·         We've added another organization to our list of supports - Emily Murphy Centre will be picking up about 30 - 50 meals per week for its residents
·         I can't tell you how proud I am of the staff - they have really come through for the organization.  They are a small crew of 6, but mighty as hell!
