Everyone is welcome to check out the Pig Roast BBQ this Friday from 5-7 pm at the Knox Presbyterian Church in Woodstock. 

WOODSTOCK - The Canadian Food Grains Bank is hosting a community BBQ at the Knox Presbyterian Church in Woodstock on Friday. 

Chairman of the local branch Steve McInnis explains what the Canadian Food Grains Bank is all about. 

"It is a Federation of almost every Christian Church in Canada, all these development organizations that are faith based, work through the Canadian Food Grains Bank to get money from the Canadian Government." 

McInnis says they have a wonderful BBQ and Pig Roast ready to go on Friday. 

"We have a couple of pigs that we roast, we boil up some corn for people and it isn't just dumping beans from a can, we have a secret recipe that we use and it is just delicious, we also have bread and corn available." 

McInnis says all the funds raised from the Pig Roast will go to support some great faith based causes. 

"They will try to get a 4-1 match from the Canadian Government, so our $3,000, might become $15,000 when it is matched by the Canadian Government and then that money will be used to purchase food in a developing country." 

Everyone is welcome to check out the Pig Roast BBQ this Friday from 5-7 pm at the Knox Presbyterian Church in Woodstock.
