            The Bobcaygeon Foodbank—the only independent food bank left in Ontario—is challenging all of Bobcaygeon and area to help out during Hunger Awareness Month (September, but don’t let October stop you) in its “One-Bag Challenge” against hunger.

            Conceived by Kelowna, British Columbia Mayor Colin Basran, The One Bag Challenge is a spinoff of the ALS

Bucket Challenge. In this case, one person donates a bag of food, then challenges three more people to do the same.

            Bags of groceries can be dropped off in the bins at Strang’s Valu-mart, Foodland, in Port 32, or at the Food Bank (43 Sherwood Street) on Wednesdays from 9:30-11 am.

            Most needed items include: cereal, canned stews, canned fruit, apple or pineapple juice, pasta sauce, peanut butter and toiletries like shampoo, toothbrushes, and deodorant. Please check expiry dates.

            Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank—a registered charity run by local churches and dedicated volunteers—will use all food and funds collected to support individuals and families in Bobcaygeon.

            Post a video or picture on Facebook using #onebagchallengeand tag the Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank.
