Food Bank president says thanks for the support

Once again the Campbell River & District Food Bank wishes to thank the generosity of the citizens of Campbell River

Once again the Campbell River & District Food Bank wishes to thank the generosity of the citizens of Campbell River for their on-going generosity in supporting our efforts to supply food to those in need in our community.  Thank you to students and staff of Southgate Middle School and Timberline Secondary who outdid themselves again this year in the Thanksgiving Food Drive.  They lead the School District Food Drive this year in the quantity of goods donated.

Thank you also to those individuals and companies who have contributed specifically to help us with our roof replacement and the construction of the shelter on the side of the building which keeps our waiting clients out of the rain on our distribution days.

We continue to provide food packages to between 1500 and 1900 folks per month. Although we continue to keep our noses above the water, we rely heavily on food contributions from our grocery stores and financial support from the community as costs continue to rise…utilities particularly, as we have numerous coolers and freezers to preserve perishables. About 40 per cent of our clients are children.

Please support our “Food Trailer” program during the next several weeks, sponsored by Dave Reynolds and friends from “The River” radio station. It is located this year in the Save-On parking lot. Your generosity over the Christmas season helps us over this sometimes difficult season for some and sends us well into early Spring.

Lynn Nash, President,

Campbell River & District Food Bank
