Don’t be surprised to see Surrey RCMP officers parked outside Save-on-Foods and PriceSmart Foods in the lead-up to Christmas.

And don’t be worried – the police presence is for a good cause.

Officers will be at the South Point Save-on-Foods, the PriceSmart at 18710 Fraser Hwy.  and the Newton Save-on-Foods (100-7320 King George Blvd.) through Dec. 24 collecting cash and non-perishable food donations for the Surrey Food Bank and Sources' White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank.

The 12-day Pack the Police Car campaign – it launched on Dec. 13 – aims “to ensure that no one goes hungry this holiday season,” Insp. Garry Begg said.

The top-10 food items needed at the food bank are: powdered baby formula, canned fish and meat, healthy cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, whole-grain pasta and rice, pasta sauces, canned and dry soups, macaroni and cheese and stew or other meals in a tin.
