The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive is a province-wide initiative that is annually organized and “run” (literally) by local volunteers who travel our community on foot to distribute donation bags and pick up food donations. You might not think a few cans and boxes of food collected on each street would add up to much, but last year our community’s generosity resulted in the Oliver BC Thanksgiving Food Drive collecting nearly 7000 lbs of food. Oliver residents’ generosity over the last 6 years in placing bags of food on their doorsteps has meant that our Oliver Food Bank has fed many people in need.
Food drive volunteers have delivered food donation bags all this week to many Oliver homes for the 7th Annual BC Thanksgiving Food Drive. The donations in support of the Oliver Food Bank will be picked up on Saturday, September 16th.
Those who do not receive a bag can drop off non-perishable food donations at the Oliver Food Bank (6047 Station St.) between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm on collection day: September 16th, 2017.
