Community Giving

 

In 2020 Cancarb seconded two student interns to the Food Bank for a period of 3 weeks to support them during the COVID crisis when many of their volunteers could not be as active as normal.  The students were kept busy at the Food Bank helping them to keep the operation running, all the while maintaining the necessary social distancing protocols.
