Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Donates $5000.00 to Community Food Sharing Association
Residents Encouraged to Build on Town’s Donation and Support Local Food Drive

In light of the devastating fire at the Community Food Sharing Association’s (CFSA) warehouse and in addition to the regional efforts with our fellow municipalities, the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s will be contributing a donation of $5000.00 to help mitigate the unexpected expenses now faced by the CFSA. Mayor Carol McDonald will present the cheque to the Community Food Sharing Association on Monday, February 4th at 2:30pm.

The Town is also encouraging residents to join in and support the cause by bringing non-perishable food items to any of the upcoming Winter Carnival events. The Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s food drive campaign is called “Snow Your Support: Fill the Fish Tub.” There will be food donation bins available at each of the Winter Carnivals events from February 8th to 17th, 2019.

Mayor Carol McDonald states, “I am proud to support the Community Food Sharing Association, especially during this challenging time. This organization does truly valuable community work and helps so many people every day in our town, our region, and across the province. I am pleased to see so many towns arranging community food drives and I encourage other municipalities to contribute financially to the cause as well.”
