Helping local families one donation at a time
Giant Tiger Kemptville announced its commitment to fighting hunger with a $2,000 gift card donation to Salvation Army Kemptville Client Choice Food Pantry.
“The holiday season is a particularly busy time of year for the food bank. At Giant Tiger we are committed to making a difference in our communities ensuring that families in need get the support and necessities they require,” says store owner Rick Kingsley. “We are proud of the partnership we have with our local food bank.”
According to Food Banks Canada, 13 per cent of Canadians live in a state of food uncertainty, which means they do not have dependable access to adequate amounts of safe, nutritious food. Each month, over 850,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.
This donation is part of a $35,000 commitment made by Giant Tiger Stores to food banks in various communities across Canada.
