Nawash Food Bank

The Food Bank is supplying a need for the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. Residents of Neyaashiinigmiing are isolated from such things as an economical grocery store, as well as job opportunities. The result is that few people have transportation or the financial stability to support their families.

This service offers refuge for families and individuals that are struggling to put food on the table. The Food Bank is open on Thursdays, except for the first Thursday of the month. Beyond the provisions of food, there is clothing, quilts and other miscellaneous household items available. The partnership with The Wiarton Salvation Army also encourages all to connect with all resources (ie. Leap, Family Support Services, etc.) The desire is to work with the current strengths and grow the resources available.
