Cornwall Ontario Spent How Much on Food Stuffs & Provisions in 2013?  Letter to the Editor From Jim Marshall

food stuffs

Councillors and Mayor,

A recent post on a local news site suggested that something like $600,000 dollars was spent by the city for food stuffs and food provision.

 

I found a 2013 budget document from the City of Cornwall that roughly confirms that information.

 

Please be kind enough to provide some itemization and explanation for this amount… certainly; the providers, the partakers, and a description of the food and related services (and perhaps the neediness which prompted the expenditure).

 

Are we talking 10 thousand $60 dollar meals? …I’m very curious given that that budget allotted just $10,000 dollars to the AGAPE Centre (ie. the Community food bank, soup kitchen etc.) an organization serving the desperately “in need”.

 

I look forward to a timely response.

 

Yours,

Jim Marshall
