The COVID-19 virus is highly contagious. The best way to keep it out of the community and protect the health of our families and neighbours is by limiting contact with people outside Neyaashiinigmiing. To help us keep our distance during the pandemic crisis, the Food Bank program has expanded its operations with more days and more stock. The Food Bank provides a healthy selection of foodstuffs, including meat, dairy, grains, canned goods, fresh produce and even pet food. They can even include some common personal hygiene products.
While it has always been open to all residents, the Chief and Council urge every household to take advantage of the Food Bank at this time and avoid unnecessary trips to the supermarket.
Food Bank distribution will be open to all residents on Tuesdays, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and Thursdays, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, at the Community Centre.
