Shelves at Sources Langley Food Bank are no longer bare thanks to the Save-On-Foods stores in Langley and Aldergrove!
The stores answered our plea for proteins, and brought several flats of tuna to our Food Bank last week. They also brought the beans we asked for, which are a staple in the diets of many of the Syrian families that have settled in Langley and visit our Food Bank.
According to Sources Food Bank Manager Jaye Murray, Save-On-Foods came forward in response to the Nov. 24 Aldergrove Star article about us not having enough protein.
In addition, Save-On-Foods has contacted local businesses and arranged for a donation of 30 turkeys to be delivered this week!
With their help, we will be able to do a festive holiday distribution after all!
Thank you so much to Save-On-Foods for your generosity in our time of need.
Special thanks to Willoughby store manager Jason for organizing the effort.
If you would like to contribute to our holiday distribution, we are gratefully accepting donations of proteins, juice and fresh produce before Wednesday, December 20, 2017. For drop-off hours, please visit our Sources Langley Food Bank page here.
