Update 08/04/2020 from Malcolm on the Community for Food initiative at JG Village Hall, are no longer taking food collectionsbut can still be handed in at McGills in Currie. The orgainsers have linked up with Broomhouse Food Bank who are still open.
With the schools closing we wanted to ensure we had something in place in the community to provide families who need a little extra help with a local drop in place for any additional food items you might need now the kids are not in school.
