Market feeds need

During the Shoparama Christmas Market Dec. 7 and 8, non-perishable food items will be collected for the Vernon food bank.

Residents looking for something special for Christmas will also be able to help those in need.

During the Shoparama Christmas Market Dec. 7 and 8, non-perishable food items will be collected for the Vernon food bank.

“Last year, shoppers and event organizers combined to provide food and cash donations of worth more than $6,000,” said David MacBain, community ministries director with the Salvation Army.

Though the food bank shelves are often in need of most food items, a few suggested items are:

Boxed grains (rice, cereals, pastas)

Peanut butter

School snacks

Pasta sauces

Canned tomatoes

Baby formula

The Shoparama Christmas Market takes place at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

“Thank you for considering supporting the Salvation Army food bank while having a blast shopping for that special Christmas gift,” said MacBain.
