Foodbanks in Haliburton County are down nearly $30,000 in donations this year.

They have had food donations, but money has been very difficult.

Chair of Minden’s Food Bank Marilynne Lesperance explains why she thinks it’s down.

Lesperance says they are hoping for more donations because this is the busiest time of the year for our local food banks.

Moose FM’s Radiothon is on December 8th, and the 9th. We will be on air collecting donations from 6:00am, to 6:00pm, on both days.
