Goal hits halfway point

With more than $1 million and 526,000 pounds of food donated across Canada during the Extra Helping food drive, Loblaw Companies is more than halfway to achieving its 2014 goal of $1.8 million and 1.8 million pounds of food.

British Columbians have helped to replenish food bank supplies in the province with $84,005 and 36,128 pounds of food donated by customers and colleagues from Real Canadian Superstore and other Loblaw stores across the province during the Extra Helping Spring food drive of 2014.

“Year after year our customers contribute food items or add a few dollars to their grocery bill to ensure that families in their community have enough to eat,” said Peggy Hornell, senior director of community investment.

This year’s holiday food drive kicks off in December.
