The Half Moon Bay Neighbourhood Watch program has once again secured the generous services of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity of Carleton University who have volunteered to patrol the streets of Half Moon Bay on Halloween night.
On behalf of our 80-90 volunteers and the families who count on the Barrhaven Food Cupboard for help, thank you, the Half Moon Bay Community Association and the participants at your community event today for your support of the Barrhaven Food Cupboard.
Many people are surprised that a food cupboard actually exists in a community such as Barrhaven. The unfortunate reality is that the need for food assistance even in a community such as Barrhaven has increased significantly over the last several years.
In 2010, for example, the Barrhaven Food Cupboard provided food assistance to an average of 46 families a month. In 2011, the monthly average increased to 64 families. In August 2012, 102 families were served -- this translates into 369 persons, of which about 1/2 are children.
As the "neighbours helping neighbours" caption on the Barrhaven Food Cupboard logo emphasizes, it is only with the generosity and thoughtfulness of neighbours such as yourselves that the Barrhaven Food Cupboard can continue to provide some measure of help to those of our neighbours in need.
We are grateful for your support. Would you please pass our thanks along to your community association and the participants in your food drive.
