Local food bank announces new co-chairs, COVID-19 update

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Whitchurch Stouffville Food Bank has increased precautions to protect the health and safety of its clients, volunteers, suppliers and generous donors.

York Region Public Health has deemed the operation an “essential service” so, at this time, operating hours for those needing food support are unchanged: Mondays 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. and Wednesdays 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m.

The Whitchurch Stouffville Food Bank Board of Directors has appointed two new Co-Chairs to oversee all operations: Susan Smith and Julie Stevens. They are both Stouffville residents. Previous Chairperson Anand Daté has stepped down after four years of service in this planned transition and will remain on as a board member, but will be devoting more of his time to his baby Lorenzo Lexi Daté.

The support from our community during these challenging times has been tremendous. All the received monetary, gift card and food donations from local individuals, businesses, groups, churches and schools is very-much needed and appreciated.

Donations are gratefully accepted at https://wsfoodbank.ca/donate
