CALGARY, Alta. — With the rail companies doing their part to move donated hay from Ontario to drought-stricken Alberta, trucking companies now have an opportunity to get involved.
The Waterloo Food Bank has collected 20 pallets of food to be distributed to rural food banks in Alberta to help farmers who are suffering from catastrophic conditions this summer.
There are 10 pallets of pork and beans and 10 pallets of pasta available for Alberta families, however, the Waterloo Food Bank is lacking transportation from Ontario to Calgary. The Waterloo and Calgary Food Banks are calling on trucking companies to donate some space on their rigs to get the food to where it’s most needed.
The Calgary Food Bank will issue a tax receipt to the carrier that steps forward to help out. If you can volunteer a truck for this good deed, please call Peter Vaudry at 403-214-3438.
