Cooksville Lions Food Security Project
Mississauga, 14 January 2016: In celebration of the birthday (13 January) of Lions Clubs International's founder, Melvin Jones, and to participate in the Lions Worldwide Week of Service (10 - 16 January 2016), the Mississauga Cooksville Lions Club organized a Food Donation Drive among family and friends and donated 500lbs of food to Seva Food Bank, Wolfedale Rd, Mississauga. The lions also spent 2 hours sorting, packing and shelving the many donations. Marianthi Karras, the Volunteer and Staff Engagement Coordinator of Seva Food Bank, welcomed and oriented Lions to the food bank operations and shared about the food bank's effort to eliminate the stigmas and stereotyping of clients of a food bank. It certainly was an eye opening and fulfilling experience.
