Kamloops Food Bank executive director Bernadette Siracky gives instructions to physically distanced food sorters before food donations arrived at the Wilson Street food bank location during the April 2020 Rotary Food Drive, the first to be held amid the pandemic.
Despite concerns about volume to be donated, the spring 2020 event saw a record 70,000 pounds of food collected, enough to fill food bank shelves for six months.
The 2021 spring Rotary Food Drive will take place this Saturday, April 24. Look for the familiar yellow bags in today’s edition of KTW. Place food items in that yellow bag (or any bag on hand) and place it at the end of your walkway or driveway for collection on Saturday morning.
