An Armstrong household is inviting neighbours to leave what they can, so that other can take what they need.
Harvey de Salle set up a food donation box outside the front gate of his home on the corner of Fred Street and Fletcher Avenue, and shared a call for generosity on Facebook.
“To help the folk around that could use a little extra we have set up a ‘Take if you need it and Give what you can’ stand outside our front gate. If you could spare a little extra just put it in the stand.”
Food banks have been under added strain amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
On April 12, Monashee Outdoors thanked members of the public who have placed items in their bins — destined for the Armstrong Food Bank — in recent weeks.
