Food drive helps hungry

A full stomach and warm clothes is not a lot to ask for, yet, many people in Nanaimo do without both.

In support of the Hamperville campaign, Pepsi Bottling Group, Regional Recycling and Steve Marshall Ford is hosting the third annual beverage container, food and clothing drive with allĀ  proceeds going to the Salvation Army and Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank.

The drive takes place Nov. 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot at Regional Recycling, 2375 Hayes Rd.
