Hike for Hunger in the Comox Valley

Last year’s Girl Guides’ national service project — Eradicate Hunger and Poverty — was a huge success with the collection of almost 1,000 pounds of food.

With this in mind, the 1st Komux Pathfinders decided to co-ordinate another Hike for Hunger in the Comox area this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The 1st Komux Guides, 5th Komux Guides and 7th Komux Brownies will assist the Pathfinders in going door to door for the collection of food for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

Most-needed items include: macaroni and cheese or pasta and sauce; canned fish or meat; peanut butter; powdered milk; infant formula and baby food; breakfast cereal; canned soups and stews; and canned fruits or vegetables.

If you would like to make a donation and girls do not come to your door, you can drop of a non-perishable food item at the Comox Fire Hall.  Should you have any questions about this event, contact Debbie Wright at 250-334-3569 or kwright5@shaw.ca.
