"We had decided to pump a little bit of money into our facility to improve things for our clients," said Christine Hager, the executive director of The Sharing Place. "We were bursting at the seams and our storage area was pretty cramped."
The youth, making the optimal use of a small, irregular space, custom built shelving units to store the food. And it was more difficult than it sounds as the area is small and the floor is uneven.
"I think it really challenged their problem-solving abilities," said Hager.

The needs are changing so we're changing along with them," Christine Hager, executive director, said.
The industrial landscape in Orillia has shifted over the past decade, she said, and good-paying jobs are being lost.
There's a misconception that people who use the food bank also rely on social assistance, Hager said. That may have been the case in the early days, she continued, but it definitely isn't now.
The Sharing Place began keeping electronic records of its clients last year.
"It turns out that a substantial portion of them have college and university degrees," Hager said.
Hager said the problem is growing across Canada as a result of federal policy.
"Food assistance is a Band-Aid solution to what's going on. We need to discuss the root cause behind all of this and that's a pretty complex conversation because that involves poverty and unemployment," she said.

The Sharing Place food bank, Orillia Salvation Army and Guardian Angels parish chapter of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul worked together last year to centralize their hamper programs, said Christine Hager, executive director of The Sharing Place.
"People tend to sign up for multiple lists," she said. "We're all working together to make sure people who are entitled to hampers get them."
The Sharing Place handed out 587 hampers, the Salvation Army, 486 hampers, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, 363.
Hager said The Sharing Place's client base, however, continues to grow and the number of visits to the West Street food bank has increased by about 4% over the past year.
The number of children The Sharing Place serves has increased by 22%, Hager said, and the number of families, by 24%.
"That indicates that families just can't make it anymore," she said.
Hager said The Sharing Place collected 104,637 pounds of food in the lead-up to hamper distribution. The food not used to pack hampers for clients has been, and will continue to be, administered through The Sharing Place's regular monthly program.
She said she hopes the excess is enough to keep the shelves stocked for the next two months.

"It's exceptional, because it helps us increase nutrition, which is the direction we are moving in at the food bank," said Christine Hager, executive director of The Sharing Place.
"Now that things are coming into season, we will probably have to come here every couple of days to see what is going on," Hager said.
Produce from several tower gardens, recently installed at city hall, will also go to food bank clients, Hager noted.
