A Windsor food bank is re-opening Monday, after it had an “amazing” change of fortune in just 24 hours last week.
The Windsor Homes Coalition food bank had never shut its doors in 45 years, until last Thursday.
“All we had left in our food bank was a loaf of bread and a can of tomato juice,” says Windsor Homes tenant advocate Shirley Beaton.
But after word got out, donations started pouring in—starting Friday morning.
Beaton says that’s when members of the Windsor Muslim Community Association showed up with a “truck full of food” and a $5,000 check.
