Joseph Fletcher, food security co-ordinator and the board of the Bella Coola Valley Sustainable Agricultural Society would like to send a huge thank you to Save On Foods in Williams Lake, Hodgson’s Freightways, and BC Ferries for donating and securing safe passage for a palate of watermelons to our neighbours in Bella Bella during a time of need.
They arrived without incident on one of the hottest days of summer and they were enjoyed by many. Special thanks to Darrel Fritz (Hodgson’s and BC Ferries) for loading the ferry in the wee hours of the morning.
Financial donations are still being accepted for rebuilding the only grocery store on the island lost in a tragic fire.
Visit rebuildbellabella.tumblr.com to make a donation to help rebuild the store.
