Emergency personnel will be rounding up food to ensure Lumby residents don’t go hungry.

Today at 5:30 p.m. the Lumby RCMP, fire department and ambulance service, along with volunteers and businesses, will hold the second annual Emergency Services Fight back against Hunger food drive.

“This event is a door-to-door canvassing of the community of Lumby and surrounding area to fill the shelves of the Lumby Food Bank,” said Const. Gary McLaughlin, with the RCMP.

“Members of the community are asked to place non-perishable food items at the end of their driveway to be collected by volunteers tonight.”

Cash donations are also accepted.
