Central Okanagan Community Food Bank volunteers are asking residents to fill their grocery bags

The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank is kicking off another year of its door to door campaign.

The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive will be held from Sept. 11 to 15 across B.C. The volunteers are organized and ready to go…. the Food Bank is still in desperate need of the donations of Food to serve a growing population in our communities that require assistance.

For the ninth year, volunteers will be handing out bags at your doorstep. These grocery bags can be filled with goodies and will be collected at the end of the drive.

The food bank serves 4,000 people each month.
