Surrey Food Bank is hosting its 21st annual Breakfast with the Bank on May 9 at the Taj Park Convention Centre (8580 132 St) from 7 to 8 a.m.

The theme for the fundraising event is “40+ years of helping change lives.”

Guests will enjoy “a delightful morning meal, network with fellow community members and leaders, and learn more about the impactful work being done by the Surrey Food Bank,” reads a media release from Surrey Food Bank.

Mahmood Zafar, the interim executive director for Surrey Food Bank, said he was excited for the annual event.

“This annual event serves as a crucial fundraiser for our organization, allowing us to provide essential food assistance to thousands of individuals across Surrey, as well as to improve and amplify the compassion networking,” Zafar said.

All proceeds from the fundraising event will go to Surrey Food Bank. The food bank serves clients in Surrey and North Delta who live north of 40 Avenue and helps more than 17,000 clients monthly, with 42 per cent being under 19.

Vijay Naidu, communications manager, said tickets for the event are free, but they are encouraging people to sign up as table captains and invite nine others. Contact Shermin/Vijay at or Mahmood at for tickets.
