Food Items Needed for Foodbank!

fruits-and-vegetables The Salvation Army Chilliwack Foodbank is desperately needing food items for the food bank.  We seriously need things with protein: canned meat, peanut butter, beans etc, canned vegetables, soup, noodles, breakfast items, coffee and tea and pretty much EVERYTHING!! We are accepting food items at The Salvation Army Care and Share Centre, 45746 Yale Road, Monday to Friday between 9 am to 12 noon and 12:30 to 4 pm.

SHARE A BIT OF BC GOODNESS!

Each time you visit your local Chilliwack grocery store you have the opportunity to support The Chilliwack Food Bank by purchasing one of these BC Shares coupons.

Your $2 donation helps the Chilliwack Food Bank purchase fresh fruit, vegetables and other products from local grocery stores.

When you purchase a BC Share Coupon, the funds go directly into an account with our name on it.  When we are low on supplies, we will go to our local stores and use these funds to directly purchase food.

This is a great way to support your local food bank on a weekly basis.

For only $2 you can make a difference!

Stop by any grocery store in town today and make your contribution.
