North Okanagan Thanksgiving Food Drive soliciting donations

Cool Story - North Okanagan Thanksgiving Food Drive soliciting donations

It's almost time for the 12th annual B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive.

For the Saturday, September 23 event, food donations are being requested from locals in the Coldstream and Vernon communities.

As many homes in Vernon and Coldstream as possible will have flyers delivered to their doorsteps by volunteers from throughout the city, along with pick-up instructions. The same volunteers will pick up the food donations on the 23rd between 9 and 10:30 a.m.

Donors are urged to make arrangements to have the supplies dropped off at either of Vernon's two Save On Foods (Village Green or Polson Park) if bags have not been picked up by 1 p.m.

Over 4,800 volunteers contributed close to 675,000 pounds of food to the drive last year, which benefited food banks all over the province.

In the Okanagan, 822 volunteers are expected to have gathered 162,000 pounds of food for the area's food banks in 2022.

Vernon wants to surpass the 38,500 pounds of food that were gathered in the Vernon and Coldstream area last year.

The Food Bank is looking for donations of several high-demand commodities, such as canned tuna, salmon, sugar, rolled oats, side dishes, pancake mix, syrup, canned fruit, flour, rice, instant noodles, and jello.

You may get more information at bctfooddrive.org. Call Uriah Kane at 250-550-0182 if you're interested in sponsoring.
