A Message from Our Chair
Being hungry is not something that people typically talk about out in the open, but it is prevalent in our community and many times hunger is not easily recognized. Every day children go to school without breakfast, families are forced to make the choice between electricity and food and older adults have to decide between being able to purchase prescribed medication or groceries for the week. Unfortunately, it is a reality for many of our community members. The Sudbury Food Bank strives to ensure that every dollar raised goes back into our community to support those who require it in the form of tangible items or food credits at area food suppliers.
It is also our goal to break the stigma associated with requiring the assistance from and support of a Food Bank. We are here to help in any way that we can by providing readily accessible items through educational institutions, religious establishments, community centres and charities.
Community Safety and Well-being is a Shared Commitment to ensuring the safety, security and wellness of our community members through collaborative partnerships. We cannot do it alone, we need the help and support of our community and community organizations to ensure that everyone has enough to eat. As the Board Chair here in Greater Sudbury, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to those who have and who continue to support our local Food Banks. Together we can put an end to hunger in our community.
Chief Paul Pederson
