A food bank that helps youth in the Williams Lake area is in desperate of donations.
Alexandra Weiand, operations supervisor for the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake, said the centre’s food bank is used by quite a few youth throughout the week and drop in to pick up food as they need it.
“We really need non-perishables,” she told the Tribune Tuesday.
“We see lots of youth picking up snacks such a granola bars and things like that, but then we also have some youth who are parents and even need baby formula or baby cereal.”
She said if anyone is thinking of donating, to consider choosing non-perishable foods that don’t require a stove or a microwave.
“Some of the youth live in tents,” Weiand said.
Donations for the food bank can be dropped off at the front office, 17 Fourth Avenue South across from Safeway.
