It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Salvation Army Food Bank in the City of Woodstock and they are still accepting food donations.

WOODSTOCK - The Salvation Army in Woodstock has noticed a spike in people using their food bank over the past couple of weeks.

The past two weeks have especially been busy for the Food Bank as several people remain unemployed due to the pandemic. Community Ministries Coordinator Noel Stern says are still accepting food donations and cash donations, however they cannot accept donations at this time for the Thrift Store. 

"You can always bring donations to our Family Services Office at 190 Huron Street, the Food Bank is currently opening on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am to 3 pm and our church office at 769 Juliana is also open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays." 

Stern says the volunteers have been amazing during these difficult times.

"I want to give a great shoutout to our volunteers and the couple of staff. Obviously with our Thrift Store being closed we had to temporarily send out staff home but our family services staff are still there along with a couple of key volunteers, they have been faithful and fearless in coming in and helping us to keep going. We have had people ask, the biggest challenge of course with the Food Bank we want to ensure the safety of everyone, so we can't always accommodate all of our requests for volunteers, for the safety of everyone." 

Stern says they do have a greater need of the following items for donations:

- Pudding cups
- Canned fruits
- Cereal
- Pasta sauce
- Peanut Butter and Jam
- Hamburger Helper
- Coffee
- Pancake mix and syrup
- Canned goods and non perishables
- Instant coffee and creamer

Stern says they are telling anyone in the community, if you need help, do not hesitate to contact them. You can listen to the full interview below:
