Christmas has come and gone and its time to restock the shelves at the Barrie food bank.
Executive Director Peter Sundborg says donations have taken a hit because of rising grocery prices.
Not only are people cutting back on donations because of their own food bills but those who use the food bank are finding it hard to make ends meet especially
with rising costs of fresh vegetables and meat.
Sundborg is hoping canned goods aren’t quite as big a problem
The food bank is hoping for 70 thousand pounds of food.
They can always used canned meat, canned vegetables and fruit, peanut butter, jams, flour and pasta.
26 hundred families are served by the food bank each month.
