That's a lot of food!

For the past 41 years, Vernon realtors have been braving the elements to collect food for the Salvation Army Food Bank, and this year was one of the most successful ever.

Last year, the realtors collected a whopping 35,000 pounds of food, but Lt. Stefan Reid with the Salvation Army expects the total will reach 36,000 this year.

“As always, the realtors and this community certainly pulled through, and 36,000 pounds for a food drive in this community at this time of year surpasses our expectations,” said Reid.

“We're thrilled the community continues to support us the way they do. This may carry us into the first part of the summer. The food that the realtors have raised for us definitely lasts six to seven months.”

Reid said the food drive also collected many items the food bank was out of.

For anyone who was missed or still wants to donate, you can call your favourite realtor, and the items will be picked up, or you can drop them off at the Salvation Army.
