Food bank gets a boost

The Lake Country Food bank has received a major financial boost.

Valley First has donated $10,000 to the food bank to help with programs.

“Tackling hunger is a priority for us,” said Paulette Rennie, Valley First president.

“Food banks are such a vital part of our community. To extend our support to Lake Country enables us to help even more British Columbians in need and continue to make a real difference in the fight against hunger.”

In 2010, Valley First launched the Feed the Valley program to raise food and funds for food banks in the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson regions. It has raised more than $950,000 and collected more than 60,000 pounds of food since then.
