The demand on local food banks has never been higher, especially with the extra pressure that the holiday season can cause for families, said Media Relations Officer, Corporal Alexa Hodgins of Coquitlam RCMP.
This is our way to give back and show our support when they need it the most.
Every month the SHARE Food Bank serves over 5,000 people who are struggling to make ends meet," said Claire MacLean, Chief Executive Officer, SHARE Family and Community Services Society. "Seniors on fixed incomes, newcomer and refugee families weighed down with expenses, single mothers trying to provide for their children, and families who just can’t earn enough to keep up with the cost of housing, gas, groceries and more. By donating funds or food to SHARE, you are helping the magic of the holiday season reach every home in our community. Thank you for your support – together we can SHARE the joy.
If community members wish to donate and are looking for specific ideas for donations, some of the items in greatest need are:
- Instant noodles;
- Canned fruit and veggies;
- Canned meats;
- School snacks;
- Cooking oil;
- Dish soap.
We will also be accepting grocery gift cards and cash donations.
Thank you for your donation and hope to see you there.
