Fort Saskatchewan residents pitched in to help those in need.
The first Taste of Summer Charity Barbecue in Legacy Park raised $475.90 for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank.
With food bank use up by almost 30 per cent since last year, they are in need of crackers, canned soup, cookies, cereal, canned vegetable and peanut butter.
"This is fantastic, the turnout today for the barbecue was excellent," said Wayne Katchur, vice president of the food bank.
Another Taste of Summer Charity Barbecue is planned for July 26, with all the proceeds going to the Families First Society. All the details are here.
