Annual food drive returns

Collection begins for fifth-annual British Columbia Thanksgiving Food Drive.

South Surrey and White Rock residents should keep an eye out for volunteers coming door-to-door to drop off bags for the fifth-annual British Columbia Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Volunteers will be dropping off the empty bags, which can be filled with non-perishable food items, then left for pick up on Sept. 21.

According to media representative Zac LaRocque-Walker, all donations are directed to the food bank serving the community where they are collected.

“The volunteers do all the work. All people have to do is be a bit generous with food for those that need it,” he wrote in a release.

Last year, volunteers in White Rock and South Surrey collected 7,649 pounds of food for the drive.
