Curves helps food bank

The 2015 Curves Food Drive gets underway Monday and runs through to March 21

The 2015 Curves Food Drive gets underway Monday and runs through to March 21 at participating Curves centres across the U.S. and Canada, including Vernon.

Curves is inviting both non-members and members to take part in the food drive by bringing in a bag of non-perishable food or a monetary contribution of at least $30 to be donated to a local community food bank.

All new members who make a food or monetary donation will receive a $0 enrolment fee when joining Curves.

“We are excited to take part in the Curves Food Drive again this year as it brings the community together to feed the needs of our local food banks while bringing women together in their health and wellness,” said Angela Yablonski of Curves of Vernon.

“This year, donations will benefit the Salvation Army.”

Now in its 17th year, the Curves Food Drive has gathered and donated millions of pounds of food over the years to benefit local community food banks.  Curves members have participated in unique ways including friendly in-club competitions and other unique events.
