Island Pilates and Fitness hosts annual food bank drive

Island Pilates and Fitness hosts its annual food bank drive this Saturday at IPF Studio.

Island Pilates and Fitness hosts its annual food bank drive this Saturday at IPF Studio, 303B 13th St. in Courtenay from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with an ’80s-inspired workout.

IPF director, Leanne Zdebiak-Eni will channel Jane Fonda as she takes you through a fun, high-energy workout replete with vintage aerobics moves. IPF Studio holds an event every December to benefit the CV Food Bank.

“We try to make the food drive special because the CVFB has such a significant place in our community, we want to show our gratitude by celebrating what they do in the Comox Valley,” says Zdebiak-Eni. “I’ll even be wearing an authentic ’80s leopard print leotard given to me by on of my regular clients.”

Jeff Hampton of the CVFB stresses that this time of year is vital for the food bank. Donations now will help feed local families over the holidays at a time that can be very hard for those in need.

Admission to the food bank drive is by donation, suggested $10 to 15, and non-perishable food items are encouraged.

The best ’80s outfit will receive a prize. For more information, contact IPF at 250-703-2673, or e-mail info@islandpilates.ca. IPF is located at 303B 13th St. in Courtenay.
