Holiday food drive underway at Real Canadian Superstore and No Frills locations

Donations in Abbotsford go to the Archway Food Bank

Real Canadian Superstore has launched its Holiday Food Drive at its locations across B.C., including in Abbotsford.

From now until Dec. 24, all No Frills and Real Canadian Superstore stores will collect non-perishable food items as well as cash donations to help people in need.

All of the donations collected at each store will stay in the local community.

In Abbotsford, all food and cash donations will go to Archway Food Bank.

Food Banks Canada’s Hunger Count 2019 Report shows that, in B.C., children make up 34.5 per cent of those using the services of food banks.

Almost one in five food bank clients (19.1 per cent) is working but unable to make ends meet.

Last year during the Holiday Food Drive, B.C. residents donated thousands of pounds of non-perishable food to local food banks across the province.
