Food Banks BC approached Sources in 2014 and asked us to set up a food bank in Langley after the existing Langley Food Bank left the association.  Initially operating as a Depot out of the United Church in Langley, we opened our doors to clients in October 2014.  foodbanks-bc  food-banks-canada-logo
