Local families in need this Christmas will benefit from a $13,000 donation to the Vernon Food Bank raised by Nature Fare Markets’ Gather for Good event campaign.
The donation is part of a $50,000 total donation to Food Banks in Nature’s Fare communities. Co-owner Alex Monahan presented a cheque to the Vernon Food Bank this week.
“On behalf of our incredible customers, who came out to Gather for Good, and the staff at Nature’s Fare Markets, I’d like to thank the Food Bank for the tremendous work they do to support our neighbours in need in this community. We believe so much in the benefits of gathering together, to share food with one another, and are pleased to help make this happen.”
A portion of all sales in the Vernon store, on Dec. 2, contributed to the donation, encouraged by special discounts and festive treats. Donations to the local Food Bank will be accepted in all Nature’s Fare Markets, until the end of December; as well as five cents from each purchase of the Save-a-Bag program.
