Revelstoke’s annual Emergency Services Food Drive will be coming up on Tuesday September 17.

Announced today, the event will see volunteers and emergency services personnel including the fire department and the RCMP, going door to door and collecting donations for the food bank.

In the news release, Patti Larson, director of community outreach and development at Community Connections said that the food bank receives enough food to help stock the shelves until late spring and the financial donations are a huge boost to the food budget.

They are looking for volunteers to go door to door as well as additional volunteers to help sort incoming donations.
