At last week’s meeting our guest speaker was local funeral director and renowned philanthropist, Geoffrey Lougheed. While Geoff has received many community, provincial and national accolades, it was clear during his presentation on the Sudbury Food Bank, that what was most important to him, was his ability to do good in the world today. He provided some background on how the food bank started 40 years ago which focused on how individuals would eat that day. Today the Food Bank serves 17 thousand people every month, the majority of which are children. Geoff emphasized the importance of meeting people where they are at and treating everyone with respect and care. A full 100% of funds raised go directly to purchasing and distributing over 500 tons of food every year for our community.

We meet Thursdays at 7:15am at the Northbury Hotel, 50 Brady Street, Sudbury. Guests and new members are most welcome!
