Save-On-Foods’s Share It Forward event will wrap up on Wednesday, June 19.
The seven-day event, which began on June 13, will see 50 per cent of the net proceeds of every Western Family product sold at Save-On-Foods, PriceSmart Foods and Urban Fare stores, up to $300,000, donated directly to support local food banks in Western Canada.
Each store across Western Canada, including Kamloops locations, are taking part in the initiative with their own unique in-store events, promotions and celebrations.
“Last summer, our stores and customers really came together to support their neighbours,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones. “I am so proud of what we accomplished together and can’t wait to see what we can do this year.”
“Save-On-Foods is our biggest retail donor and we are so excited to be involved in their Share It Forward event for the second year in a row.” said Laura Lansink, executive director of Food Banks BC.
“We are so thankful for the support of Save-On-Foods and their customers, as these donations go towards providing nutritious meals to the 80,000 British Columbians who rely on the food banks in their communities every single month.”
