Smiths Falls Food Bank Manager Natalia Soteroff accepted a cheque for $570 from Station Theatre board member Lynda Daniluk on behalf of The Continentals.

The Continentals took to the stage for an afternoon concert on Nov. 12 and donated the proceeds to the food bank. The Station Theatre donated space, time and utilities to the cause.

Soteroff says the money will likely go to fresh produce like onions, potatoes, carrots and cabbage.

On average, the Food Bank serves 477 families over the year on a monthly basis. And while food donations are “amazing,” Soteroff says, and make it what it is today, she adds that “monetary donations are wonderful, too.”
