"It's very important that they believe in the issue of hunger because a lot of people don't understand the issue of hunger," said Christine Hager, The Sharing Place's executive director.
The Orillia food bank is seeing 1,500 different clients a month with a food budget of between $10,000 and $12,000 a month.
"The financial support is very, very welcome," Hager said.

Sharing Place executive director Christine Hager said the organization is thrilled to be involved.
"Something like this is really important," said Hager, who noted the food bank is estimating it will need to fill about 500 hampers this year.
While the food bank gets large corporate donations, the play will provide a venue for the community to purchase turkey vouchers. People can also buy portions of the bird, said Hager.
"It helps make sure there is a turkey in every pot," she said.

"We all know that healthy bodies and healthy minds start with healthy foods," said Christine Hager, executive director of the Sharing Place, adding one-third of those who rely on the food bank are children.
"With this lunch bag program, we're actually going to really make a difference in a child's schooling," she said.
The program, expected to launch mid-December, will afford clients the opportunity to pick up two brown paper bags per school-aged child, each containing about a dozen pre-packaged healthy snacks, when they come in for their monthly order.
There will be three different options to choose from: one will be gluten free, one will contain more dairy products, and one, more produce, said Hager, noting the items in the bags could range from yogurt to fresh fruit, raisins to granola.
"They could take that brown bag and split it up and do whatever they like with it," she said, adding she felt it was important to maintain an element of choice.
"The children can participate and say, 'On Monday, I'd like to have these three things, on Tuesday, I'd like to have these three things," she said.
While Hager anticipates the funding from the Rural Kids Program will run out in about three months, she suspects the impact of the brown bag lunch program will be long-lasting.
"It's going to take us a little bit of figuring out how we're going to do this efficiently. Once we get a system going, it'll be all the way to the moon," she said.

Christine Hager is the Executive Director of the Sharing Place Food Bank and says some of the people represented were the Community Garden, Transition Orillia, Camp Couchiching and Orillia Mayor Angelo Orsi.

Hager says one way of encouraging people to start a community garden would be to foster some competition between the wards.
She says the next step is to hold some public meetings this month to let the public know what they are trying to accomplish.

"This year we have a focus on different cultures from different parts of the world," said Christine Hager, executive director of the food bank. "We are hoping to develop this into a multi-day event." Organizers are aiming to net $25,000 for the food bank through this signature fund-raising event. "Last year I believe it raised $16,000 net, which is a significant amount of money," Hager said. "We are counting on community support to turn this into an even better event." The roster includes the reggae-roots sounds of the Likkle More Band, the Zimbabwean beats of the Tich Maredza Band, the Dragon Ritual Drummers, and the Gypsy Rebels. "There will be three drum circles, so people can come and participate in that too," Hager added. "In between the drum circles we have the different bands, and the Mnjikaning Kendaaswin Elementary School Choir." The downtown food bank experienced "quite a lull" in donations over the summer, Hager said. "When people go on holidays, they don't tend to think about food banks and stuff like that," she said. "They're busy relaxing, and I can totally understand that. Orillia has been an amazingly supportive community of the food bank, but we found that we weren't getting any food in at all." A recent plea for help prompted a significant spike in food and cash donations, Hager added. "They really rallied," she said.
