At the leaders’ luncheon on January 9, 2019, the ONEchurch Community Action Team announced an innovative plan to mobilize the churches of Brantford to feed the city.
The summer months represent an annual “dry spell” in terms of donations to the Brantford Food Bank. This ongoing problem results in a significant drop in the amount of food available for families in the months of July and August, when their need is greater with children home from school. Plans are underway to meet this need by coordinating the biggest food drive in Brantford’s history, mobilizing churches to go door to door in 12 “zones” within the city. This two-part, city-wide event is slated for June 1 and 8, 2019.
Churches are getting on board right now to partner with this initiative. You can join the excitement! Email the ONEchurch Community Action Team to become a contact for your church or community, or to get more information.
