Last month a truck pulled up to the Nelson Food Cupboard loaded with food: beans, rice, soup, vegetables and much more. The food was donated by members of Knights of Columbus Nelson Council 1560 and Cathedral Parish. The donation, valued at $520, was part of a North America-wide initiative to collect food during Lent. The Knights of Columbus encourage other local organizations to follow suit. The Nelson Food Cupboard serves about 1,000 customers each month and strives to offer a variety of healthy options. The Food Cupboard’s new Coordinator Anna Kirkpatrick gratefully accepted the donations. To donate to the Food Cupboard drop by their office in the Nelson United Church during open hours, Monday and Wednesday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. or call 250-354-1633.
