‘Thanks for Giving’ food drive in its second decade

Delview Secondary School students and staff will scour North Delta neighbourhoods on Thursday to collect donations for food banks.

Delview Secondary students are collecting non-perishable food items on Oct. 11.

Over the past 19 years, students and staff taking part in Delview Secondary’s Thanks for Giving food drive have collected more than 200,000 non-perishable food items for local food banks.

Now entering its 20th year, the event has grown to be the largest one-night food drive in B.C.

Every October, hundreds of students and staff scour North Delta neighbourhoods, canvassing door-to-door in search of donations. They then return to Delview Secondary (9111 116 St.) to count and sort the food donations.

More than 10,000 items are collected each year.

This year’s event takes place Oct. 11, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
