Yes the Legion purchases food from local merchants such as Foodland and No Frills. Both these stores recognize that the purchases are for the “Hamper Program” and they respond by giving the Legion the “best price” that they can.

At many of these events the proceeds of the event go to the Community Services Account from which the Captain Charles S.
