Petrolia, Ontario – The Lambton Federation of Agriculture donated $1000.00 to the Inn of the Good Shepherd and $1000.00 split among each of Lambton County’s rural Food Banks to alleviate the impact of COVID-19 on the less fortunate within the community.

“Physical distancing has prevented us from delivering them in person, but the cheques are on their way and in the mail,” said Gary Martin, President of the Federation.

The Lambton Federation of Agriculture as well as other agricultural commodity groups recognize the urgency of the situation in the city as well as in the food banks scattered throughout the county.
