Save-On-Foods drive to benefit local food bank

Save On Foods and Campbell’s Food Company are teaming up to stock the shelves at the local food bank with a two-week campaign.

Save On Foods and Campbell’s Food Company are teaming up to stock the shelves at the local food bank with a two-week campaign, Help The Hungry.

Save On manager Randall Bamford said the store will be offering sale prices on Campbell products which will benefit the Williams Lake food bank at the Salvation Army.

“Campbell’s will provide a $1 donation for every four products purchased, up to $40,000 for B.C.,” he said.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to drive donations for our food bank.”

Bamford said there will be a display set up at the front of the store, as well as special food bank paper bags customers can use to bring the items to the check out.

According to Sabrina Silvey at the Williams Lake Salvation Army, the campaign couldn’t come at a better time.

Less than two weeks ago Silvey appealed to the Tribune/Advisor for donations of protein because the shelves were almost empty.

“It’s great because everything locally donated benefits our local community,” Silvey said.
