Sunday, May 13, the Missisquoi North Volunteer Centre (CABMN) held its Partage/Share food bank Annual Mother’s Day Pancake Breakfast at the Baluchon School in Mansonville. The event started at 9:00 a.m. and the parking lot quickly filled with cars and supporters of the food bank program who ushered in to sample the pancakes, sausage and fresh fruit. As part of the CABMN volunteer centre, the mandate of the Partage/Share program and its committee is to help provide essential food and household consumables where need exists in the community. The committee collects food and money throughout the year for Christmas baskets and requests that come from the public in times of need. Partage/Share does not get any grants or financial assistance from the government therefore 100% of their funding comes from donations from individuals and businesses and events held annually like this one. The Partage/Share committee made up of: Charles Laurin, June Peacock, Claire Alger, Roger Gagne, Christian Donaldson and Jean Turner were all on hand throughout the event working to make it a success alongside volunteers. This dynamic group of individuals have brought an abundance of energy and involvement in the food bank program expanding its support to now include services of the “Banque Alimentaire Memphremagog” (BAM) program. To get more information about Partage/Share, the BAM service or to request support from the food bank, call the CABMN, 450-292-3114 (all requests are confidential).
