100 Tonne Food Drive

Look for grocery bag in this week's Record

  • Nov. 25, 2015 8:00 a.m.

Black Press and Quality Foods are teaming up again this Christmas to help fill the shelves at the Comox Valley Food Bank.

Record readers would have received a Quality Foods paper grocery bag inside one of their newspapers this week. Residents are asked to fill it up with non-perishable items and bring it to Quality Foods in Courtenay or Comox, or directly to the food bank.

As an added incentive, buy any five Campbell’s “Red and White” 284 ml soups and Quality Foods will donate one more on your behalf.

Each month, the local food bank serves roughly 1,200 people, approximately 30 per cent of whom are children. Most clients are single parents, the working poor and people in transition.
