Help the Surrey RCMP collect food donations

'Pack the Police Car' event on Aug. 16 and 17 assists the Surrey Food Bank' new seniors' program.

Starting on Aug 14, the Surrey RCMP will invite the community to help “Pack the Police Car” with non-perishable food donations in support of the Surrey Food Bank’s new 65-plus seniors’ distribution program.

The program offers seniors a chance to collect their food in a respectful and non-rushed environment while providing them with nutritious choices such as high-protein and low-sodium options.

Surrey RCMP will be on hand outside various PriceSmart Foods locations from Aug. 14 to 17 with a marked police car accepting food and cash donations to help families in need during the summer season.

Collection times and locations are:

• Aug. 14 and 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Save-On Foods, #100, 7320 King George Blvd.

• Aug. 16 from 3-7 p.m. at PriceSmart Foods, 10312 King George Blvd.

• Aug. 16 from 3-7 p.m. at PriceSmart Foods, 17745 64 Ave.

• Aug. 17 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at PriceSmart Foods, 18710 Fraser Hwy.

“Our seniors are the foundation of our community,” said Surrey RCMP Insp. Garry Begg. “We are honoured to participate in partnership with the Surrey Food Bank and observe first hand, the overwhelming generosity of the citizens of Surrey.”

The top five food items needed by the Surrey Food Bank’s seniors’ program are:

1. Canned fish/meat (e.g. tuna, ham, turkey)

2  Meals in a tin (e.g. beans in tomato sauce or stew)

3. Canned vegetables / fruit

4. Whole grain pasta/rice

5. Pasta sauces
