Food bank desperate need

“Our Christmas inventory, which we rely on to get us through the spring, is now nearly depleted of many of our staples,” said Lenetta Parry, Executive Director of the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

“We are down to only a few days-worth of items such as canned meats, fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, cereals, pasta and macaroni and cheese.”

Nearly 4,000 individuals per month, approximately 700 families receive support from the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

On Fri. April 26 and Sat. April 27, Okanagan Eats Food Show will take place at the Kelowna Curling Club.  

Organizers of Okanagan Eats have graciously donated a limited number of complimentary tickets as a way to garner food donations.
