South End Food Bank Needs Some Help

The Community Food Basket, also known as the South End Food Bank on Charlotte Street, needs your help. 

The Food Bank's Brenda McIntyre tells CHSJ News they're running short of cereals of all kinds, tomato soup and glass jars which are needed to properly store the food. 

Glass is not recycled in the Saint John region and McIntyre says the jars are tough to come by. If you can help out, McIntyre says just bring the food or jars to their location. 

She says they used to get boxes and boxes of cereal coming in but not anymore.

Port President and C-E-O Jim Quinn tells CHSJ News there will be lots to do for the kids including rides the LAV, light armoured vehicle, which is part of the military equipment being brought from C-F-B Gagetown.
There will also be a barbeque with all the money raised from that earmarked for the Boys and Girls Club. Last year, 10 thousand dollars was raised for the Joshua Group. 

There are also tours of the port on board the pink double decker buses and Aquila Tours is providing a free shuttle from the Carleton Community Centre to the cruise terminal.
