Second Harvest Food Bank volunteers Lorraine Ellens

Second Harvest Food Bank volunteers Lorraine Ellens, Cindy Hopkins and Ingrid Zechel sort out vegetables for distribution. The shelves are bereft of inventory, and staff are appealing to the community for donations of food (not expired) and/or money, which is used to buy fresh produce and other products required to provide healthy food options for those who utilize the food bank.

In particular, Second Harvest is really low on non-perishable items such as macaroni and cheese, soups and toilet paper. Also appreciated would be any rhubarb that anyone is willing to donate. For more information, people are asked to call 250-833-4011.
