Mount Hamilton Youth Soccer teaming up with N2N Centre
Officials at Neighbour to Neighbour Centre are hoping this Saturday will be super for their food bank.
The west Mountain agency and the Mount Hamilton Youth Soccer Club have teamed up for a big food raiser at the club’s annual Super Saturday championships at Mohawk Sports Park.
“There’s going to be 2,000 kids playing their championship games,” said Doug Farraway, director of development at Neighbour to Neighbour Centre. “We’re hoping all the families that are trekking over there will remember to bring food.”
Farraway said the focus of the food raiser that runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. is on breakfast items for children such as cereal, nutritious snack bars, juice boxes, juice cups and pancake mix.
“We think it’s important that youngsters headed off to school have the right start to their day,” said Marg Cavalluzzo, administrative manager for the soccer club.
The Athens Street food bank serves about 1,300 families each month.
