St. Pat’s Food Rescue E-blast LIST!!
Hello there,We are setting up an E-blast list for our worthy Food Rescue Program that has been serving our community with lovely food items from cafes, stores, bakeries such as Starbucks and Save-On. The Program is strong and on-going and even growing in suppliers.This LIST will assist us with the following aspects of running this program:
- Gives us direct contact with those that have expressed interest and need, as the first to receive, and then to the extended parish if supply allows.
- Helps us confidently secure valuable postings of food items as they are being made available, in good timing limiting waste
- Helps us efficiently plan a concise day/time/location for distribution limiting unnecessary space occupation
- All privacy will be respected and kept
