Proceeds were raised from the Vernon Gather for Good event.

“We truly believe that it’s important to take care of each other to build sustainable, healthy communities and we are pleased to help in any way we can — through Gather for Good events, proceeds from our Save-a-Bag and 3 per cent Club Programs, and many in-kind gifts,” said Nature’s Fare Markets co-owner Alexa Monahan. “We just couldn’t do it without our customers.”

For those who still want to contribute, donations to the local Food Bank will be accepted in all Nature’s Fare Markets until the end of December. Five cents from every purchase will also be donated when shoppers bring their own bag through their Save-a-Bag program.

The B.C. family-owned business has stores in Kamloops, Kelowna, Langley, Penticton, Vernon, West Kelowna and White Rock. For more information on all our community initiatives, please visit www.naturesfaremarkets.com.
