Hunger-Free Kids Summer Program and More!

By Melody Bosk

What a wonderful variety of fruits for the kids this past week! We had BC Cherries, Blueberries, Grapes, Peaches, and a few bananas to top it off! For Veggies we were blessed with an abundance of fresh cucumbers and carrots from Zelaney Farms, and through our food recovery sources, we were able to add a fresh tomatoe and green pepper! Then we add a loaf of fresh IDA’s Bread as well as a variety of proteins, plus a little of this and a little of that. I think that it will keep a few bellies from rumbling this week!

Our small but helpful crew keeps everything running smoothly and organized for Friday pick-up days; I’d be lost without them…thank you gals and guy!

 As I mentioned last week we have become a little short-handed and could use an extra hand or two for Saturday Mornings and one for Tuesdays. So if the kiddos are getting under your feet send them off to us Saturday Morning around 10:30, it’s our big day of organizing the food recovery boxes as they come off the truck. Sometimes it’s not a fun job, but the camaraderie is excellent and we make our own fun. It would also be great for a couple of seniors to come in and lend a hand going through the fruits and veggies we can even put the jukebox on if you like!

In new news of what’s happening at the food bank, it looks as if our president has decided to go ahead and get the driveway done. If all has gone well, you should have already witnessed some of the new concrete and pavement as it was put down, if it’s not in by the time you read this… it will be coming in soon!

Thank you too many of you that have admired our flowers that were lovingly completed by B&S Ranch, we really want to help our visitors and clients feel comfortable when they are here, it also totally reflects the beauty in our tiny community.

I’m keeping it short this week folks, please don’t go without, reach out when you have a need-and don’t forget moms and dads, get your child/teen registered to have a summer food pak once a week. Reach out to us at the Food Bank 250-547-2225 to set things up… it only takes a minute.

Take Care and stay cool.
