The Food for All Food Bank in Skidegate has only about $400 left in the bank and may not be able to feed its clients next month, says coordinator Memory Pearson. “I don’t know what to do,” Ms Pearson said this week. “We are stressed to the max. We need people who know how to access funding and we need about 10 to 12 volunteers.” Ms Pearson said the food bank managed to distribute food to families in Queen Charlotte, Skidegate and Sandspit this month, but she’s not sure what will happen in August. Donations have dried up, probably because most islanders are being squeezed by higher prices for gas and groceries, she said. If you can help the food bank with a donation or volunteer time, call Ms Pearson at 559-9041.
