The non-profit society that runs the Tri-City food bank is calling on the community to fill its shelves.
On Aug. 21 and 22, the Share Family and Community Services will host a drive-thru food drive in the southwest parking lot of Coquitlam Centre mall, by The Bay.
The drop-off station will be set up from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
And donors are asked to place their non-perishable items in their trunk before collection, so volunteers can maintain physical distancing.
Here’s what’s needed:
- dried beans
- canned chilli and stews
- macaroni and cheese boxes
- canned mushrooms
- canned chickpeas
Monetary contributions — via debit or credit cards — will also be accepted ahead of time via sharesociety.ca/donate-to-share.
