Food bank drive continues

Loblaw and President's Choice aim to raise $1.35 million nation-wide.

With Christmas just around the corner, Loblaw and President’s Choice are continuing their Holiday National Food Drive, which locally will support the Surrey Food Bank.

Since Nov. 26, Loblaw retail stores – which includes Extra Foods and Real Canadian Superstore – have encouraged customers to donate non-perishable food items, or cash, when they do their shopping.

Loblaw’s goal is to raise $1.35 million, and 1.2-million pounds of food, Canada-wide.

The Surrey Food Bank currently serves more than 15,000 clients each month in Surrey and North Delta, and 40 per cent of clients are children and babies.
