Helping rural food banks stock their shelves
In 2001, the Quinte Regional Food Share Shelter (QRFSS) was formed. Food Banks Canada introduced this initiative to ensure rural food banks could access food at a central warehouse and reduce shipping costs. The QRFSS is a collective of 6 area food banks that address the hunger needs of many families and individuals through the Tri-County region. Gleaners Food Bank is a host and honorary member of the QRFSS collective.
