The annual B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive is happening on Saturday, Sept 20. Volunteers on the Sunshine Coast will be dropping off grocery bags with a flyer at people’s homes during the week of Sept 13. They are asking people to put unopened, non-perishable food items into the grocery bag with the flyer attached. Items need to be placed on front door steps before 9am on Sept 20. For homes with a long driveway, please place donations at the driveway entrance.
Food will be donated to all local Food Banks on the Sunshine Coast including St. Bartholomew’s Food Bank, Salvation Army Food Bank, Sunshine Coast Food Bank and Pender Harbour Food Bank. Last year, the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive raised 10,000 lbs of food for the Sunshine Coast.
