Oliver donated over 7700 pounds of food during last year’s BC Thanksgiving Food Drive, helping restock the shelves of the Oliver Food Bank.
Every month, approximately 500 people use the Oliver Food Bank to feed themselves and their families. Your generosity in supporting this effort over the last 9 years has meant well over 53,000 pounds of food has been donated locally and that our Oliver Food Bank has been able to feed hundreds of people in need. We encourage all locals and businesses to help restock the Oliver Food Bank shelves in time for Thanksgiving.
We will available to collect donations at the Oliver Food Bank (6047 Station St.) between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm on collection day: September 26th, 2020.
