Multi-faith food drive for Richmond Food Bank

Four local congregations are holding a multi-faith food drive on Sunday, July 13.

As an outreach, Beth Tikvah Congregation & Centre, Our Saviour Lutheran Church, St. Anne’s Anglican Church and St. Joseph The Worker Parish are holding a food drive for the Richmond Food Bank in its mission to provide food security and nourishment to the City of Richmond's less fortunate citizens. The drive will be held on Sunday, July 13, from 1 to 4 p.m. outside the Safeway store at the Blundell Shopping Centre near No. 2 and Blundell Roads.

Residents are asked to bring non-perishable food, or purchase some from Safeway ($5 and $10 food bags will be available). If you would prefer to make a cash donation, Richmond Food Bank staff will be on site.
