Keeping the Food Bank in the Family
- Essex Food Bank moving -
The Essex Food Bank, probably the only food bank in Ontario located in and operating out of a public school building, will be moving to make way for construction of the new Essex District High School. But the Greater Essex County District School Board has been able to maintain their unique relationship by finding them a new, permanent location.
Starting in the new year, the Essex Food Bank will be taking over the gymnasium of the former Sun Parlor PS building not far from the high school.
On Thursday, December 19th their move will officially begin. At 11:30 a.m. Essex District High School students will deliver the proceeds of their We Care We Can food drive to the food bank’s new home.
The Essex Food Bank has been located at EDHS since 2001, unfortunately their space is scheduled for demolition next year to allow for phase 3 of the new school construction project.  The Sun Parlor PS building has been closed, as a school since 2008.
