Launch of Lakeshore Food Hub | Apr 29, 2020
LAUNCH OF LAKESHORE FOOD HUB
The Community Support Centre of Essex County and its Food Pantry is facing a surge in demand due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this increased demand, the CSC will be opening a county-based drive-thru food hub at their location (962 Old Tecumseh Rd.) on April 29th.
The CSC’s Food Pantry, which is part of the Windsor Essex Food Bank Association, is typically run grocery-style. However, due to the increase in demand and the need to keep everyone safe and socially distant, the decision was made to switch to a drive-thru model.
Residents will drive to the hub’s location and stay in their vehicles while volunteers load a food hamper into their trunk. This location will operate every Monday and Wednesday from 11am-2pm.
If you have any questions, please contact the Community Support Centre at 519-728-1435
