We Scare Hunger program brings in truckloads for food bank


Staff at Castle Ford ran the We Scare Hunger campaign in Pincher Creek last month, bringing in 2,518 pounds of donations for the food bank.

Ford of Canada partnered with the We Movement in 2014, and Castle Ford general manager Pete Schauerte says the local dealership has participated annually.

“Castle Ford gives a big shout-out and thanks all who were so generous in assisting those in need,” Pete says.

He acknowledges special assistance from donors like Shell Waterton and its staff, local Hutterite colonies and the Pincher Creek Co-op.

Pete says he approached Jim Peace, general manager of the Co-op, for pricing assistance on the food.

The Co-op volunteered a prominent place to display an F-150 truck for collecting donations in the mall. This, and pre-packaged bags of suitable food, made it easy for the community to participate and fill the truck to overflowing.

Ford of Canada’s goal is to collect 325,000 pounds of food nationwide this year.

The We Movement encourages individuals, organizations, and businesses across the nation and around the globe to work together to improve the world around us.
