This planned renovation has been put on hold due to COVID-19. Due to the rising number of clients visiting our 55 Newkirk Rd. storefront each day, our food bank needs more space! At some point this spring, our current space will be undergoing a spring makeover. Richmond Hill MP Majid Jowhari came to the food bank June 30 with a certificate to celebrate our new, larger refrigerated van with our manager, Lee Reynolds, board chair and volunteers.

The pandemic has driven more hungry people to local food pantries, which draws additional needs for services, according to food banks in the region. High school student Caleb, is the volunteer co-ordinator of our high school student volunteers. He helps organize grocery store events where students bag donations for our food bank, earning volunteer hours and encouraging shoppers to help re-stock our shelves all year long. He trains the students, helps keep track of their hours, and works with the store manager to ensure the safety (and fun!) of these volunteer events. It was a win-win shredding event Saturday at the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank. Not only did many local residents have boxes and piles of documents safely shredded and disposed of by Papersavers Shredding Services, but the food bank raised $795 in the process! For a first-ever event presented by the food bank, it was a great success, and many of those who came out suggested the food bank should do more such shredding fundraisers. So stay tuned for the next one and thanks to everyone who came out Saturday morning to help hungry families. Combined, the food banks collected a total of 26,750 pounds of non-perishable food items and just over $3,000 in cash donations.

Whether it’s called a pantry or a food bank, your local emergency food aid organization is feeling a unique set of pressures, as explained by the executive director of the Newmarket Food Pantry, Adrian Bain. The brewery has filed a charitable bingo hall application. In a Nov. 4 letter, the brewery said launching a Thursday bingo night was a success, but pandemic restrictions forced them to halt. It then said they learned that they would need certification to continue acting as a bingo hall. Through our funding we have started to break down accessibility barriers in and around our community in many ways to improve mobility for persons with disabilities. Rama’ Gaming’s entertainment area stretches 30,000 square feet, as this high-quality establishment on 991 Kennedy Rd in Scarborough features an impeccable reputation, often praised for its novel machines and premium service. Aside from bingo draws, Rama Gaming House features somewhere in the neighbourhood of four hundred slots, multiple billiards and ping pong tables, and a terrific cocktail bar with a massive TV screen. Note that this venue continuously runs special event promotions.
For much of 2020, funds came from Richmond Hill Bingo World, as our food bank is one of many charities and non-profits receiving a share of proceeds generated by patrons of the bingo hall. Of course, right now Bingo World is closed due to provincial stay-at-home orders, but last fall, when Richmond Hill was under “red control” restrictions, our food bank was still regularly receiving proceeds from cGaming machines. So thanks to bingo hall and gaming patrons, and everyone is looking forward to some future date when COVID-19 is under control and patrons can return to the fun – and helping charities such as our food bank. Dan Vacca and his wife Dina, agent and owner of State Farm in Thornhill, brought a truckload of food donations to the Richmond Hill Community Food Bank this week! The company had a food drive and collected much-needed peanut butter, soups, beans and hygiene items. Food bank manager Lee Reynolds and Dan held a large, tangible sign saying ‘thank you’, on behalf of hungry families in Richmond Hill and Thornhill! Volunteers and board members also give thanks to Rae and sister Ronnie, from Cobs Bread, who have donated bread and baked goods to the food bank every week from the Hillcrest Mall Farmers Market.

Our programs remove barriers so that everyone can enjoy life to the fullest in Richmond Hill.
