The Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank got a huge boost after Halloween.
Several community groups made a point to use the Halloween season to raise food and money for the Food Bank this Halloween season. Don Lawrence's Howlleen Manor brought in 945lb of food and $60, the Sheeptown Players Society's Carnage Caverns donated 500lb of food, St. André Bessette's Trick or Eat collected 576lb of food and $151 and Little Minion's Trunk or Treat raised 18lbs of food and $200.
In total, the Food Bank had a boost of 2,039lb of food and $411.
"It was an amazing accomplishment over this Halloween," said Marlene Leroux, president of the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank. "This certainly helps us out a great deal."
For the past three years, more people have been making an effort to contribute to the food bank around Halloween. The amount of donations the food bank has recieved has been increasing each year.
"We really appreciate the work that everybody put into this Halloween season and we're very thankful for the work that they do."
