St. Margarets Bay Food Bank will be using the $500 honorarium to offset the increasing cost of food as their client numbers are continuing to rise.

(Text from a recent letter) “On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers of the St. Margaret’s Food Bank, I wish to express our sincere thanks for the Food Bank being accepted as an applicant to the Honorarium Program of the Bay Treasure Chest Association. Enclosed is an unofficial receipt for $500.00 received in October from our first visit to the Program. We are so very grateful, as receiving cash permits us to keep the Food Bank running successfully, as well as being able to purchase food and other items which are needed but not always donated. This year we have noticed an increase in the number of clients needing assistance and such a generous monetary donation will help tremendously. Please express our thanks to all members of the Association. Yours sincerely, Gwen Christie, Secretary”
