"And what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8)

Jesus teaches that there are two great commandments: love of God and love of neighbour.

Food banks and community kitchens play an essential role in strengthening food security across our communities. These services help to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our society have sufficient access to food -- a fundamental human right.

All members of the Parish of the Valley are invited to make contributions to food security agencies operating in their local communities. If you're unsure which foodbank is closest to you, be sure to visit to find the one nearest you. A partial list of local agencies is provided below. Click on the agency names for more information:
