Quality Foods, in conjunction with the Comox Valley Record, has once again launched its annual bags campaign, with brown bags inserted into today’s newspaper.Readers are encouraged to fill bags with non-perishable food and drop them off at either QF in Comox or Courtenay.All bags collected in-store are donated to the Comox Valley Food Bank. The program has been in place for many years.”It’s something we like to be involved with just because of the obvious outcome of it,” said Kevin Knowles, store manager at QF in Comox. “It helps the needy, and we sure raise a lot from it. It’s always something we pride ourselves in doing.”It seems to get worse every year,” Knowles added, referring to the food bank’s need for donations. “These programs sure provide a large tonnage of food for them.””That’s our way of helping out,” Courtenay QF store manager Dan Gigliotti said.Customers can also donate Q-Points that can be turned into food for the food bank.Another option is to purchase a pre-filled bag that can be donated to the food bank. “It sheds light on our buy-a-bag program,” Gigliotti said.Both stores accept cash donations as well as the bags.reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com
