Come and meet the Nelson Food Cupboard

The Nelson Food Cupboard will mark the occasion by opening its doors to local students.

October 16 is World Food Day. The Nelson Food Cupboard will mark the occasion by opening its doors to local students.

Classes ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 12 will tour the food cupboard and learn about emergency food services in the Nelson area.

The Nelson Food Cupboard provides barrier-free access to healthy food and serves more than 1,000 customers each month. About one quarter of the food cupboard’s customers are children.

Community members who want to learn more about the Nelson Food Cupboard are warmly invited to this year’s annual general meeting on October 23 in the basement of the Nelson United Church at 602 Silica Street.

Come enjoy hot apple pie with vanilla gelato starting at 7 p.m. The meeting begins at 7:30 and  is an excellent opportunity to learn about the food cupboard’s people and projects.

The Nelson Food Cupboard always welcomes donations of time, money or food. For more information or to get involved contact the food cupboard at 250-354-1633.
