Bradford Spanish Church collects over 300 items for local food bank

The Bradford Spanish Church held its free kids camp last week, collecting over 300 items for the local food bank

The Bradford Spanish Church held its annual kids camp last week which generated over 300 non-perishable food items for the local food bank. 

Camp co-ordinator, Janina Espino Pozo says it is a way for the community to get together and give parents a break during the week. 

"For the community, by the community," she said. 

The free camp ran Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  at Green Valley Alliance Church on Simcoe Road. 

This is the third year it has ran, with over 60 kids participating in this year's "A Journey Through Space" theme. 

In lieu of payment, children were asked to bring in non-perishable food items as part of a competition to see which age group could collect the most. It was the 4-5 year olds who took the lead this year with 116 items collected. 

The event was run by the church volunteers and sponsored by local businesses, Peter's No Frills and realtor, Wilson Verduga. Proceeds from the church's food festival in July also went towards last week's camp.
