Produce Donation from Bradley Museum

Thank you Bradley Museum for the bountiful harvest this year!  Each year the Bradley Museum donates their space and time to grow a heritage garden for us.

This is the most recent donation.  Who knew there was such a thing as purple potatoes??

Men’s Group Take Anti-poverty Petition to Ottawa

In June, twelve men from The Compass Food Bank went on an overnight trip to Ottawa. They attended the House of Commons and were introduced by Mississauga-Lakeshore MP Sven Spengemann, who then spoke about an anti-poverty petition they brought with them, which collected more than 200 signatures.

You can watch the video about the trip on Sven Spengemann’s Facebook page.
