Driving support helps fill White Rock/South Surrey food bank

An annual Thanksgiving Food Drive collected nearly 7,000 pounds of food for Sources' food bank

Sources South Surrey/White Rock Food Bank is celebrating a bounty of support this month, following the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.

The country-wide event – part of Hunger Awareness Week – was organized at the local level by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Volunteers distributed white bags to homes throughout the Peninsula earlier this month, and on Sept. 17, returned to collect donations of non-perishable food items.

The effort resulted in nearly 7,000 pounds of food for Sources food bank.

More than 600 people visit the 2343 156 St. food bank every week.

“Each and every donation makes a tangible difference for the people who come to our food bank seeking help to feed themselves and their families,” Sources’ CEO David Young said in a news release. “We want to thank the community for their generous donations.”
