Nanaimo church supports food drive

A Nanaimo church is joining a provincewide effort to ensure people have food on their tables at Thanksgiving.

The Nanaimo congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is participating in the B.C. Thanksgiving Food Drive on Saturday (Sept. 17).

Donation bags provided by Quality Foods were dropped off to as many houses as possible this week and volunteers will go door-to-door on Saturday collecting bags.

The food drive is organized by the church in the more than 40 communities across B.C. it serves, in conjunction with Food Banks B.C. No cash donations are solicited door-to-door.

In Nanaimo, food drive proceeds will go to Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank.

For more information or to volunteer, please go to www.bctfooddrive.org.
