I wanted to take a moment to share some information about a program through the Vancouver Food Bank that some may not be familiar with: The Food Runners Program.
When most people think about a food bank, they think of donating non-perishable canned goods, however the Vancouver Food Bank has the Food Runners program set up to take donations of all sorts, perishable produce, meats, anything you can imagine. In fact, they will send refrigerated trucks to your house, kitchen, or restaurant to pick up donations anywhere in the Greater Vancouver area!
I encourage anyone having a large gathering or BBQ this summer to consider donating surplus food to this great program.
For more information or to schedule a pickup, contact Will, manager of the Food Runners Program at 604-834-7457.
