Donations decrease as demand at the London Food Bank increases

London, Ontario. –

The London Food Bank is hoping a last minute boost will help them meet their annual Thanksgiving campaign goal.

This year’s promotion started last Friday and so far it’s lagging behind the pace of last year’s food collection.

The number of people using the blackboards has increased by twenty percent this year.

Glen Pearson, co-executive director of the London Food Bank, says they are behind but hopeful.

“We’re a thousand pounds behind this year compared to what we were last year. Last year we were around £ 39,000 and now we are at 38. Half of that is coming this weekend so we just ask the Londoners to remember us and give what they can. ”

Londoners can go online and donate or drop off long-life groceries at most participating grocery stores.
