Give food on Saturday
The public is being asked to help replenish the shelves of the Central Okanagan food bank’s Kelowna and West Kelowna locations on Saturday.
There are several ways to donate to the annual Thanksgiving food drive.
If you received a food-bank plastic bag and flyer, place unopened, non-perishable food items in the bag with the flyer attached and leave them on your doorstep in clear view.
If your doorstep is not visible from the road, or you have a long or steep driveway, place the bags at the end of your driveway, near the road.
Volunteers will come and pick them up.
If the bag option isn’t available to you, you can drop off donations at Save-On-Foods in West Kelowna from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday.
Save-On-Foods at Orchard Plaza and Costco in Kelowna will also be accepting donations, also from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
You can also drop off donations at the food bank.
Items of need include: pasta and pasta sauce; canned fruits and vegetables; stuffing mix; canned cranberries; Boost; baby food (all ages); formula; diapers sizes 3-4; baby wipes and gluten-free items.
