The Semiahmoo Ravens Peewee A1 hockey team delivered 150 pounds of food to Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank on Dec. 6.

The 11- and 12-year-old team members collected the canned and dry goods from friends, family and spectators at a recent home game at Centennial Arena.

Sources White Rock/South Surrey provides food to more than 525 individuals each week.

The program relies on community donations and more than 80 volunteers to deliver services.

The food bank’s mandate includes supplying healthy, nutritional foods to people in need. Suggested donations include canned protein (tuna, salmon, chicken), brown rice, whole grain pastas, and canned fruits with no added sugar.

Around the holidays, favourites include tea, tangerines, frozen turkeys, nuts, chocolate and chunky soup.
