Filling weekly food bank orders at The Salvation Army was a little easier this week thanks to a generous donation of 150,000 lbs of potatoes from McCain Foods.

“We still can’t believe our eyes,” says Captain Jamie Locke, divisional secretary for public relations and development. “We are so grateful for their generosity.” 

50,000 lbs of potatoes are to be delivered to locations in Halifax, Sydney and Fredericton, where they will be organized by volunteers and distributed to Salvation Army food banks in their region. 

“Everyone is coming together to help those who need it the most. We are so fortunate to have community partners like McCains who are stepping up during this difficult time.” 

The Salvation Army continues to provide essential services across Canada throughout the COVID-19 crisis. To donate, visit or call 1-902-455-1201
