“We’re humbled and grateful to be working with the Rotary Club of Bowmanville again to put on this wonderful concert,” says Ben Earle, executive director of Feed the Need in Durham, “Across our network we see the faces of poverty and hunger as 6,000 visits are made to food banks in Durham each month. But we also see the spirit of generosity and service as our community comes together through events like this concert to show their support for our work and helps us respond to hunger in Durham.”
“Hunger is often silent,” says Regional Chair John Henry. “65,000 of our neighbours here in the Durham Region say they’re concerned about their food security… Feed the Need is playing a key role in helping those folks and their families get the food they so badly need.”
