Donors to the Timmins Food Bank didn’t even have to get out of their cars this morning to make a drop-off.

The Chamber of Commerce organized the hour-long drive-thru collection, headed up by executive member Rob Knox.

“Its genesis was from the 100 People Who Care initiative,” he tells My Timmins Now Dot Com. “ The food bank recently received $10,000 from the 100 People Who Care initiative and they purchased two commercial fridges for their operation.”

Goldcorp also donated $10,000 towards the one fridge and one freezer.

Knox says this morning’s event was to help stock them — and now donations are no longer limited to non-perishable items.

“So this is really great to be able to have fresh fruit, vegetables, frozen goods, things like that.  So it’s really been a real plus for the food bank.”

The Timmins Food Bank serves about 100 families every week from its headquarters in the old Nativity Church on Spruce St. N.
