County Offers Relief to Pugwash Foodbank
The Open Hamper Foodbank in Pugwash received a big financial boost last night as Cumberland Council approved a grant of two thousand dollars.
The foodbank, which operates from the basement of the North Cumberland Hospital, has faced a growing number of clients while support from local corporate sponsors has been shrinking.
The group serves about fifty families from a wide region around Pugwash, including Wallace, Malagash, Wentworth and other areas along the Northumberland Strait. The number includes about 70 adults and 65 children.
The funds were taken from the regional discretionary budgets of Districts 4, 5, and 6, the area served by the volunteer organization.
