B.C. shares with food bank

Save On Foods customers helped the Salvation Army Food Bank buy $3,800 worth of milk, eggs and cheese for the Moms and Tots Program hampers in the first eight months of this year.

Save On Foods customers helped the Salvation Army Food Bank buy $3,800 worth of milk, eggs and cheese for the Moms and Tots Program hampers in the first eight months of this year.

It was as easy as buying a $2 B.C. Share coupon at the check-out counter when paying for their own shopping. The Moms and Tots Program provides the food, not usually included in hampers, for parents of children ages six to 24 months.

“We want to thank the  Save on Foods customers for making this possible. It makes a big difference to the families,” said David MacBain of the Food Bank.

Save On Foods manager Don Clark also thanks the customers.

“It’s a good program that helps local people. It’s a simple way to give to the food bank,” he said.
