Surrey helps with successful food drive

More than 400,000 pounds of food collected from all over B.C.

The annual BC Thanksgiving Food Drive collected more than 400,000 pounds of food for 50 community food banks across the province last month.

Nearly 40,000 poounds of food were collected in the Surrey, Richmond and Delta areas, with hundreds of volunteers going door-to-door to pick up donations.

“The success can be credited to communities selflessly working together donating time, talent, and means to meet the needs of others.For this, we are truly thankful,” said BCTFD executive director Andrew Rolfson in a press release.
