Niverville Helping Hands Food Bank is collecting food for their Fall Food Drive tomorrow at Your Grocery People (formerly Niverville Big Way). 

They are currently serving 45 families and are anticipating the number will go up this winter due to seasonal layoffs and the holidays. 

Niverville Food Bank has their hamper pick-up twice per month on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. 

Director of Niverville Helping Hands, Larissa Sandulak, lists a few things that they are in need of. 

“Things that we most need are school snacks, granola bars, juice boxes, fruit cups, that kind of thing. Cereal, peanut butter, coffee, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, canned meat, canned vegetables. All the things that you and I use to cook for our families.” 

Sandulak says the community of Niverville is very generous. 

“It always blows me away just how willing people are to step in and answer that call whether they're giving donations, or money, or even just their time to come help us. It's pretty awesome.” 

The food bank is fully staffed right now, but as they get closer to Christmas they will be looking for volunteers. 

She is looking forward to stocking the shelves of the food bank with non-persishable food items from the Fall Food Drive. 

“We're excited to see the community come out and for them to get to know us a little bit more as well.”
