IGA’s display to benefit Food Bank

A large display of canned foods at the Summerland Fall Fair this weekend will help to support the Summerland Food Bank.

A large display of canned foods at the Summerland Fall Fair this weekend will help to support the Summerland Food Bank.

Colin Powell, owner of the Summerland IGA store, said the Canstruction display, in cooperation with Campbell’s Soup Canada, will feature more than 2,200 cans of food to spell the phrase, “Help Hunger Disappear.”

This is the second year the grocery store has had a canned food display of this nature set up at the Fall Fair.

“It’s a really good opportunity for us to step up and support our community,” Powell said.

In addition to the cans of food on the display, the store will collect canned nonperishable foods which will also be donated to the food bank.

This year, Campbell’s will match the value of donated goods up to $1,000.

Powell said the 2,200 cans of food will go a long way towards alleviating hunger in Summerland.
