This annual fundraiser is in support of the Port Cares Reach Out Food Centre and this is why your support is so important:

“In the month of March 390 households were provided with food from the Reach Out Food Centre Food Bank.  29 of these were seniors and 76 were single parent families.  This once a month allotment provided food for 515 adults and 216 children in the Port Colborne/Wainfleet communities. At the Centre people are also given access to resources, information and skills training. ” Lynda Reinhart, Executive Director

Port Cares wishes to thank everyone who attended this event and all of the  participating students, staff and volunteers who made this event possible.
