Fall Food Drive: October 4

The Muskoka Oldtimers Hockey Club are gearing up for the Manna Food Bank’s Fall Food Drive. Volunteers will be going door to door in Bracebridge from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the evening of October 4 to collect non-perishable food items.
Go to Foods We Need for a list of, um, foods we need. Please have non-perishable items you wish to donate ready to go in plastic shopping bags for when volunteers come knocking. If you won’t be at home or you wish to save time, you can leave your donation outside your door.

We are also very happy to accept cheques, addressed to the Manna Food Bank. We are a charitable organization entirely run by volunteers. You will receive a tax receipt for your financial donation.

We appreciate your generosity!

We’re also looking for volunteer drivers and food sorters for the evening. Contact us at or 705.646.0114 to learn more or to sign up.

Seeking board members

We are looking for one-to-two community-minded individuals to join our Volunteer Board of Directors. Contact us to apply.

Addendum: as of November 2011, the Manna board is complete. Thank you for your interest, and if you’d like to volunteer for Manna, please let us know.
