2019 BC Thanksgiving Food Drive

This annual event in Squamish is coordinated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints in collaboration with Squamish Multifaith Association and the Squamish Foodbank. It enjoys a very broad range of community involvement in distributing flyers, and in collecting and sorting food donations. The Leadership Class at How Sound Secondary School, students of Quest University, the Rotary Club, members of participating Faith Groups along with their friends and neighbours all join hands in this community effort. In addition to volunteers distributing flyers and collecting food, Dominos Pizza fed the volunteers and Shell Gas brought in hot drinks.

A total of 6541lbs of food was collected. Just in time as the food bank shelves had become severely depleted.

It takes some 100 volunteers to distribute flyers, collect donations and sort the food as it comes into the food bank.
A great community effort!
