Food Drive

I forgot to add this in today's post. We are accepting donations of cans and/or cash until noon tomorrow (Saturday, February 20) for the Ancaster Community Food Drive. Please help out. The local food banks are in desperate need.

The food drive serves all of the major Food Serving Agencies in the city such as: Neighbour to Neighbour; Greater Hamilton Food Share, Mission Services of Hamilton, Good Shepherd Centre, The Salvation Army, St. Matthew’s House, Wesley Urban Ministries and Ancaster Community Services.


We will be collecting food and cash. One food item will give you one entry. What will that entry get you? The first name drawn will win a wonderful gift basket of yarn and accessories donated by our suppliers. The second name drawn will win a beautiful Offhand Design bag (the price tag on the bag is $235). The next three names drawn will win $50 gift certificates to the store. Cash is also welcome. We will give you 10 tickets for a $10 donation and 25 tickets for a $20 donation.

We will mail the prizes anywhere in Canada if you don't live in town.

We're in the store for another hour tonight or you can call the store first thing in the morning if you'd like to donate cash.

The most needed food items are
  • hot cereals of any kind
  • canned meats and fish
  • peanut butter
  • meat soups
  • canned or powder milk
  • baby food and formula (needs to have at least 8 weeks until expiry left on it)
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • canned pasta
  • dry pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • toiletries
Thanks to all who have donated in the past and I hope that you can help us out again.

If you aren't able to help out right now, please remember your local food banks and donate to them when you are able.
