Food drive at Douglas College Nov. 19-26

More than 97,000 people in British Columbia use the food bank each month, according to Food Banks Canada. Nearly one third of those people are children.

To help address this hunger problem, Douglas College is holding a week-long food drive on the New Westminster Campus.

From November 19-26, organizers will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items in the concourse area. Look for them near the big "DO."

“Hunger affects people from all walks of life, from children to seniors. We encourage everyone to come out and support the important work of our local food banks,” says Samantha Berbeck, student development coordinator at Douglas College.

The donations will go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and the Douglas Students' Union Food Banks.
