Thrifty Foods holds annual food drive

Thrifty Foods’ annual Food for Families food drive began last week in all 29 stores, including Abbotsford, with a goal to provide fresh food to 16 food banks in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island and on Saltspring Island this holiday season.

“The program provides Thrifty Foods customers with the option of adding a $5, $10, or $20 Food for Families gift voucher to their grocery order – funds that are then transformed into fresh groceries for those in need in our communities,” said Jim Dores, Thrifty Foods general manager.

In 2011, the Food for Families fundraiser provided $206,000 to local food banks and has provided over $800,000 since the program began.
