Food bank to mark 30 years

This is the 30th anniversary year for the Summerland Food Bank.

This is the 30th anniversary year for the Summerland Food Bank.

There will be a Thirty Years of Need Recognition Tea held at Summerland United Church on Saturday, May 3 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. If you volunteered for the food bank or its related activities you are invited to attend.

Over the years the food bank has been supported by various Summerland churches and by many local service clubs and organizations.

Please reply to info@summerlandfoodbank.org or P.O. Box 20015, Summerland, B.C., V0H 1Z0 or call 778-516-0015.

We are also starting a funding drive in support of the Summerland Food Bank and Community Resource Centre. The Thirty Years of Need — One Dollar a Year Campaign will reflect the continuing support from the greater Summerland community.
