Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam firefighters will be filling a big fire truck full of food this week — with the help of the community. Tomorrow, Thursday Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the firefighters will be at both the Great Canadian Superstore, 3000 Lougheed Hwy  in Coquitlam, and the Port Coquitlam Safeway at 2850 Shaughnessy St.

The purpose for this drive is to fill the food bank shelves so there is enough food for holiday hampers and for ongoing needs in the new year.

Last year Share Family and Community Services provided Christmas hampers to 2,672 adults and 1,928 children.
