Food banks across the Southern Interior have received more than $615,000 and in excess of 25 tons of food thanks to the efforts of Valley First employees, members and community partners.

Valley First’s Feed the Valley program marked its fourth anniversary March 16.

“It’s incredible the difference our Feed the Valley program is making. For the last four years we’ve seen it go from strength to strength,” said president Paulette Rennie.

Residents can support the Feed the Valley program by donating non-perishable food items or making cash donations at their nearest Valley First branch. All donations of more than $20 are tax-deductible.

Donations can be made as one-time contributions, through regular, pre-authorized payments or online through www.feedthevalley.ca or through the Food Banks B.C. online donations portal at www.foodbanksbc.com/get-involved/feed-the-valley/.
