May 15, 2017

OTTAWA, ON – This afternoon Dufferin-Caledon MP David Tilson rose in the House of Commons to commend the Orangeville Food Bank on 25 years of service to the community. Mr. Tilson said:

“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to thank the Orangeville Food Bank and its 70+ volunteers for twenty five years of service to our community.

Founded in 1992, the Orangeville Food Bank serves upwards of 500 people a month. Its founders remain a part of the volunteer team to this day.

This terrific organization operates out of a 3600 sq ft facility that allows it to share with other local organizations such as Choices Youth Shelter, Family Transition Place, the Lighthouse and the Salvation Army.

In 2016 the Orangeville Food Bank underwent major renovations that included the installation of a walk-in fridge and freezer which now allows them to accept donations of perishable goods.

I want to thank particularly founders Nancy Rampley and Eleanor Elston, Jack and Yvonne McEwan as well as the late June Daly for their tireless dedication. The residents of Dufferin-Caledon are grateful for their outstanding contribution to our community”
