Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner paid tribute to longtime Surrey Food Bank executive director Marilyn Herrmann Monday for her “enormous and numerous” efforts.

“To say she has made an immense mark in helping the less fortunate in our community is a vast understatement,” Hepner said, prior to council’s formal business June 12.

Herrmann, a Surrey resident, is retiring this month after 11 years in the role.

Hepner named expansion of the Tiny Bundles program, establishment of a Seniors Depot and a hamper delivery service as among highlights of Herrmann’s efforts at the food bank.

Following a “well-deserved round of applause,” Hepner presented Herrmann with a certificate of recognition and a large bouquet of flowers.
