What a wonderful show of support from the community.

Nice to see the support, but financial transparency would be even nicer.

I would have liked to see the new board unmuzzle the paid in full forensic audit and let it be finished and made public.

The auditor gave a report and had paper copies for handout or a website to see it on.

His report was only for 2011 people want to know about the years before that the forensic auditor was working on. This report was not from the forensic auditor, everyone knows that.

Incredible, 300 taxpayers attend the North Bay Food Bank election but only 7 or 8 attend a council meeting where thousands of taxpayer dollars are being alloted by city councillors and to the various city departments !! Do you think our priorities are a little skewed ??

It is apparent that hundreds of people came out to support the original founders of the Soup Kitchen Inc (the Foodbank) and vote them in, to continue running it. A vote of confidence like that, combined with the return of Tom Hedican and Caoch for Food, clearly establishes that the founders and former directors were and are trusted to faithfully direct the Foodbank.
