Save-On-Foods, Campbell’s Soup partner to help hunger disappear

Family Fun Day in West Kelowna to launch initiative in support of local food bank.

As part of the Help Hunger Disappear campaign, Westside residents are invited to come out to Save-On-Foods West Kelowna on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a “Family Fun Day.”

There will be a BBQ hosted by Valley First Credit Union from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be guest appearances by West Kelowna Fire Rescue, Magician Leif David, Miss Westside Dazey.

As well, there will be balloons, children’s activities, music and more.  Additionally, when a donation is made to the Westside Community Food Bank, donors will be entered to win a signed, framedpicture of NHL legend Gordie Howe.

We believe we have a responsibility to help in the fight against hunger in West Kelowna,” said Tony Czink, store manager of the Save-On-Foods in West Kelowna.  “We know that food and funds are needed and with the support and generosity of our customers and employees, we know we can make a difference to those in need in our community.”

According to Lenetta Parry, executive director for the Westside Community Food Bank, “the need becomes increasingly critical in the spring as donations received during the holiday season deplete. We are very grateful for the investment made by our sponsors, volunteers, and community. Together we can make a difference and help hunger disappear.”

As part of the national campaign, customers in the Central Okanagan can expect to save on Campbell’s soup products at all Save-On-Foods and Cooper’s locations from April 5 to 13 with $1 being donated back to local food banks.
