Haliburton’s 4Cs Food Bank and the Minden Food Bank have launched their fall food drives and are canvassing businesses in both communities to collect food and monetary donations from employees and customers. Pick up will take place on Oct. 6. It’s a low-donation time of year for the food banks and money donated will go directly to the purchase of food. Especially needed are vegetables fruit soups peanut butter jam tuna salmon brown beans as well as cereal sugar and rolled oats. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more. Anyone with questions can call Judy at the 4Cs at 705-457-3331 or Joanne at the Minden Food Bank at 705-286-6838.
